Jessica Lloyd-Jones – Anatomical Neon via Colossal.

Following an International Visiting Artist Fellowship, Jessica was awarded an Arts Council Wales and Wales Arts International grant to undertake a research and development project at Urban Glass, New York. Collaborating with internationally renowed glass artists and neon specialists she produced new sculptural anatomical neon artwork inspired by biological electricity, the prescence of natural electrical activity in the human body. 

Blown glass human organs encapsulate inert gases displaying different colours under the influence of an electric current. The human anatomy is a complex, biological system in which energy plays a vital role. Brain Wave conveys neurological processing activity as a kinetic and sensory, physical phenomena through its display of moving electric plasma. Optic Nerve shows a similar effect, more akin to the blood vessels of the eye and with a front ‘lens’ magnifiying the movement and the intensity of light. Heart is a representation of the human heart illuminated by still red neon gas.Electric Lungs is a more technically intricate structure with xenon gas spreading through its passage ways, communicating our human unawareness of the trace gases we inhale in our breathable atmosphere.
