'Out of the Blue' 

Close up of two of these gorgeous tubes.

'Out of the Blue'

 

This is a Time Piece created from 40 year old 'Cold Cathode numerical tubes'. Cold War technology, with beautiful orange numerals, glowing in neon gas. These tubes were used on the world's first super computers in the 60s and 70s before LCD and LEDs superceded them.

Standing on a rebated Walnut base, this clock incorporates antique Edwardian terminals and Victorian brass clock pieces. Although containing antiques, it also has the latest processors controlling all the timings and the LED up lighting to illuminate and fluoresce the glass tubes, with a choice of over 700 colours. This is a clock, but it is also a beautiful unique light sculpture.

Numbers 'scrolling' to prevent 'cathode poisoning', which looks absolutely stunning. (Really needs to be seen. The movement between the cathodes firing, is beautiful. Old technology becoming light sculpture).
Twilight begins to fall and the tubes reflection dances in the acrylic. SOLD.
