November 30th we are launching a new neon artwork series at Worker's Museum in Copenhagen

Sygns is a neon design and production company based in Berlin, Germany and Copenhagen, Denmark. Sygns has developed a new neon artwork series in collaboration with Danish-French conceptual artist Thierry Geoffroy / COLONEL. The collaboration was a sponsorship, managed by our Creativemeaning team.

The series consist of ten handmade neon light sculptures expressing the spirit of ULTRA CONTEMPORARY and EMERGENCY ART. The glassblowers from Sygns have skillfully folded the artist's handwritings and drawings into neon pipes of different colors and ranges of transparency. Together they have been creating a new artistic expression that combines the neon light ability to call for attention and the artist's wish to fight against the apathy by motivating the audience to take action.
