Hrafnhildur Arnardottir - Hair sculptures

Window display for Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York 2008
Since the dawn of human culture, hair has been a medium for self-expression and identity. Hair is the original accessory, possessed by nearly every person. it has been braided, twisted, wrapped,piled, coiled, looped, teased, curled, straightened, twirled, sculpted, shaved, snipped, bound and woven manipulated in every way imaginable. Using human, horse and artificial hair New York based Islandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardottir pushes the material well beyond its decorative and theatrical applications to explore it's strange and magical possibilities.
Like many Isladic artists, Arnardottir incorporates traditional craft techniques in her work.
The Nordic Award in Textiles goes this year to Hrafnhildur's magic creations. Congratulate!

*** Georges Claude - Inventor of the first neon lamp
The French engineer, chemist and inventor Georges Claude, was the first person to apply an electrical discharge to a sealed tube of neon gas to create a lamp. Georges Claude patented the neon lighting tube on January 19, 1915 - U.S. Patent.
In 1923, Georges Claude and his French company "Claude Neon", introduced neon gas signs to the United States. Neon lighting quickly became a popular fixture in outdoor advertising. Visible even in daylight, people would stop and stare at the first neon signs dubbed "liquid fire."
