Site-specific neon sign

Mare Balticum
Thomas Mann Culture Festival, Nida, Lithuania
Curated by Tautvydas Bajarkevicius

The sign was programmed to blink irregulary as if it was about to die out. The theme of the 2008 Thomas Mann Festival was Mare Balticum and the sign was shown on the shore of the Baltic Sea.

Comissioned by Thomas Mann Culture Festival
Supported by FRAME

Another version of the sign was made for the exhibition Nordic Art Today at Loft Project Etagi in St Petersburg Russia in 2011. This time the sign was presened indoors and was manufactured in cyrillic. Please follow this link for documentation of that work.
