A view of my current "office" with @alifeeney in Puerto Vallarta #Mexico along with a #sketch made in said #office . #inkscape is really nice for iterating through #neon ideas true to scale and color.

This one would be another "beer sign". I drew the oval design but think I like the "flag" design better.
Inspired by decision achitecture #incentives from the book "Nudge" by Thaylor and Sunstein. Thoughtful questions when presented with architected choices.

HUE V2: Syra
A part of HUE: NEOchromatic: 
Character ( © @CentaurWorks

Syra on top of a space cruiser as they fly towards a battle. Her Sword at the ready, as they inch closer to the planet's atmosphere.

Say Hello to the first ever Zine Image created (at least by me). When wanting to grow as an artist, I felt like the best way to do that is to sign up for Zines, and one of the few that did accept me was HUE Zines. For this, I wanted to do an image of Syra in space but riding a Space Cruiser. It always felt like something Syra could and would do if they're doing a quick travel to a battle. I especially love how I did the glow and the reflection on the glass below her. I feel proud of this as a stepping stone to greater things.

Some photos of a #fashion thing I was part of. Love working with Breanna and Peter and Home In Heven!

I should grab a few more of those giant pink tubes so I can go on vacation. If they buy a few more I will need to bulk order the coated blanks... and batteries. They do look good, can light up the room, and in theory, could even charge your phone.

Making the #glass requires patience and zen :)

Made some sales over the summer and am now treating myself. 17 liters of 99.999% pure Xenon gas! The rarest and heaviest of inert gases that aren't radioactive. With it, I can make some neatO plasma effects! This #Rainbow Xenon #doodle was made in 2019 before steel mills were halted, embargoed or bombed.

Just got the stainless Robbins valve, so yesterday was leak checking the gas delivery system. Just gotta fab some parts now to get it on the manifold :)

Me holding a fully assembled gas delivery system before adding some teflon tape and tightening some joints. Its attached to a blue propane cylinder for leak detection (propane is a lot cheaper than xenon).
leak checking the assembly by pressurizing the inside, monitoring the pressure guage and spraying all the joints with soapy. Bubbles mean leaks. Holding the assembly in a vice makes tightening parts easier.

Finally, a description of "serverless" that made sense to me: "What is a Serverless Database?"

"This is the essence of serverless; there are servers, but the developer only needs to focus on the service, not the endless whack-a-mole of scaling up and down. It’s not just somebody else’s servers; it’s somebody else’s problem."

Presented the idea to rethink science as "science within limits" at the #NEON conference in #Trondheim today. I modelled this after "computing within limits" approaches toying with terms like "tika science" (inspired by Luke Munn's tika technology), "permacademia" (from #permacomputing), and "Jenga science", among others.

For all of this remains a huge inspiration.

Finally got around to re-bending this #misinformation arrow neon sign. It was half broken by the time I got it back from Pilchuck (what I get for just tossing it in the pelican case with the rest of my stuff).
The black light (Woods) #glass I used is a neat filter to the #neon fill- even uncoated without its usual tanning light phosphor- It's tricky to bend- extra hot an fast🔥🔥

Now it "waves" as it points with the mistruth information prefixes.

@jenn big milk strikes again! This time at the #NYC Marathon finish line. Here are photos of three days of bending- and an install starting at midnight-till now.

Wow- I love working with #union folks- we barely had to do any work at all- just boss people around- and they didn't even break any of my tubes- yippee!

The marathon neon really lights up the finish line- people will be basking in the milk white glow!

Some photos of the Mirror World class my friend Kacie Lees and I taught over the weekend. Silvering (AKA mirrorizing) and a day of neon bending made for a very shiny and luminous weekend!

The students totally went mirror crazy. The shiny chemical chaos was glorious! All weekend we only generated 9 gallons of hazardous waste! (already treated by now).

How fun! I gotta type up some more class descriptions.

Yesterday I attempted to make a crackle tube. Bill Concannon told me that it was possible to bombard them slowly and to put vigereux to block crackle fill glass from covering the electrode and with that I set off.

I smashed a bunch of clear glass nice and fine and funneled it into a prepped 15mm tube.

It lit for about a minute on the bombarder (lowest setting) before the heat ripped the tube in half along the arc- pretty much a #hotpop

#mess #oops #glass #neon #science #workinprogress #nyc

The tube split in half from the electricity heating the glass too much along the focused arc and cracking the glass. It even spilled its crushed glassy innards all over the freshly cleaned pump table.
A glass tube with lots of crushed grey glass in it. Some definite impurities being burned from my initial ribbon burner bushy flame "bakeout" along with its brief bombarding giving it the darkening.

Never made a #doodle quite like this one with the inner wraps like that. I like keeping myself on my toes by trying new things with these and keeping them fresh and interesting. I feel like I have so many directions to go with these!

This is perhaps more exciting to watch than a tiny little BOO. It took over an hour an they are easy to break mess up midway.

Wanting to put "ON AN (ON.....)" in the infinity box I realized it wouldn't have worked with the reflecting. So I took a page from the Ivan Navarro playbook and used letters that have the same tops an bottoms. 8mm extra bright pink half BOO in a mirror is a full BOO. In the chamber it will be an Infini-BOO!

It took me 40 minutes to bend this. I might make a second one tomorrow for the UrbanGlass Gala. Next time I won't mess up the second "O".

Did someone say #looptober ?

#work photos of some sign things I bent. They are putting the #neon through the wall to truly see no wires- so I have to leave at least 7 inches vertical, and on target for the holes before the electrodes. Same letters next to each other ("ss", "ee") are tricky to get them to be the same- these should work close enough ;) The tubes get long- over 20 feet! The slinky like 8-20 foot glass tubes give a little bit of flex with the wall targets.

Thank you for this day. 🌇

One of the features of Chicago is its speakeasy culture. You’ll find inconspicuous drinking establishments tucked away throughout the city. This sign indicates the Cherry Circle Room (part of the Chicago Athletic Hotel).

when visiting my folks last month, i turned one of their walk-in closets into a blacklight gallery of some of my UV arts!

one UV artwork is a treat, but having a bunch is even better!

(some of the pieces below are currently available on my etsy shop: )

I feel like this could be an opportunity for a more open option. Both Google and Amazon have seemingly lost some of their focus on this market because it turns out people aren't just going to ask their voice assistant to buy them something and trust that it's just all going to work out. An open option like #Neon or #OVOS could step in and cover the basic functions. Unfortunately with the demise of #Mycroft, there's no hardware to run it on other than PCs or the #Mark2.

I can’t resist shooting this perfect sign every time we pass through Winnemucca.

Does anyone else here have this weird bug? I'm using #KDE #Neon (very similar to #Kubuntu #Linux) and it seems that the whole screen constantly, slowly scrolls up or down, by sub-pixel amounts every 1/2 second, for a total of around roughly 1 pixel every 5 seconds or so.

It's most visible on small text and near the top/bottom of the screen which cuts stuff off.It happens across all apps.

I'm using an #Nvidia card and #x11
I don't get the same behavior in #Windows.

Where to file this bug? 🤔

Hooray, it all fits!

Figures as soon as I start the assembly, I make a bunch of errors. From mounting the digit holder backwards, to screwing up the placement of supports- my clumsy hand is showing up on the inside.

Still working on the code and assembly. Still looking into #programming the interrupts to make the big red #button on top a "pause" and "mode change" button. Happy to send #code to generous C genius's.

The abomination I committed with an acrylic drill bit, hot knife and file. Is a bit more fragile, but it works!

A little video of the blinking chaser happening for my ART LOVE MONEY sculpture topper. The fast speeds are nice for the sense of urgency when the timer is on... I think a slower fade between the colors will be nice for non timed modes.

The bottom will also be RGB- but out of sync with the top- so there should be a bit of color mixing.

Some photos from mirrorizing and mineral oil tests from today. I might strip and remirror one or both of them. Getting the clean half #mirror can be tricky but the messed up effects are fun.

The mineral oil is super neat! It makes my cruddy coatings interesting. Love the bright light! I should have listened to Katie and got the scientific #glass parts- mineral oil is leaking through the latex I am using to seal it.

Small first mirror with phosphor attempt and mineral oil with glass rod (pre glass cap fab)
Showing the magnification of my imperfections in dust coating. I gotta change the latex and glass seal- mineral oil is leaking out of the latex. I should have listened to Katie and got the scientific parts.
Cruddy mirror with diluted chemicals and yellow and white phosphor. Not sure if I like it or not.
Another view of the big yellow silvered piece. I might strip it and remirror. The tube is about 50 mm in diameter. Aging table wiring.

Wooo hoo! Oven Pump day! It took a bit of planning and lots emails, but bakeouts CAN happen at Urbanglass!

Been wanting to see these tube in tubes pumped for awhile. I phosphored the inside myself to get that colorful #light - my coatings are still pretty uneven, but I love the colored light. Next up for those is mirrorizing the outer jacket and filling with mineral oil.

The big #purple tube's soft #krypton glow will look good in the dark.

pieces baking out in the oven while under vacuum. Annealing and vacuuming in one go! On the table is a manifold I made for 4 mercury traps and viton connections for easy movement and isolation.
Big purple pain in the butt filled and lit for testing before tip off. About 10 torr of Krypton makes that white glow (755 torr is atmosphere) Toxic fiber frax blankets abound in my bricked up support layer. Client was stoked!
My gang of four phosphored double tubes- they all made it (one tip off is a little gnarly)
The warm glow coming from two of the double tubes. I love the light quality from some of these warm whites. Even the yellows are neat when mixed in. My coating is thick and flakey in some spots

Dear #lazyweb,
Can anyone recommend a decent, non Microsoft wireless keyboard (or mouse combo) that works well with #Linux?

I'm on #Neon, a #KDE based #Ubuntu / #Debian derivative by the way.
