Hello Lightning Tamers!
I'm sharing with you a blog post by Mery Pataky, she's an artist that uses neon in her work is ways that are outside of of a convential setting, as well as a curator and promotor of wemen Neon Benders and Artists. Check out her recent post aobut LED and Neon, regarding misinformation on saftey and effiency remarks against neon.
Also read through her post on interviews with various women neon artists and benders, you'll get an insight on how these artist and makers get around to making and persuing their work, talk about issues regarding learning and working, as well as discussions on the medium itself.
Since following her on instagram, and checking out her page, I'm interested talking with her, and having her on the podcast in the near future.
Feel free to send your questions to this email, share, and comment!
