mundo neon glowstick installation

cups filled with neon liquid, blended from glowsticks, used in the ‘mundo neón’ performative installation and video advertisement

multiple blenders, pounds of glowsticks, 700 glasses, and 200 meters of hose were used to create ‘mundo neón’, a performative installation designed by colombian company bon yurt to promote its ‘neon’ line of yogurts.

separated by colour, the glowsticks were blended together to create a neon liquid, which was pumped through plastic hoses that were held and affixed to walls of the gallery, creating electric-like designs. stop motion footage of the project envisions the floor, covered with glasses of the substance, as a kind of audio equalizer that beats in time with the DJ who performed in the space.
