Pieke Bergmans plays with inert gases—all essentially colorless—which emit light when subjected to a voltage under compression in a relatively small space. As soon as the gas is able to expand, the light grows dimmer and gives the impression of vanishing. The designer had glassblowers produce organically shaped tubes in various diameters, which she then filled with argon. All this resulted in a series of gestural blue neon lines drawn in space that seem to be moving freely, lighting up, or suddenly fading away.
