One of the Glass Center's special guests for GA/GI Festival on April 6...
Art Energy Design will be outside the Glass Center. This year the flower will be powering an internally lighted stream of water in an exhibition called Liquid Light. Water is transformed into a crystal clear state called "Laminar Flow" and has the ability carry and bend light, much like a fiber optic cable. GA/GI goers can get some fun hands-on playtime and make a splash that will not be forgotten. Thunderbolts of lighting! See the video in our right column.
