Fred Tschida’s motorized kinetic neon sculptures


A Professor of Glass and Chair of Sculpture/Dimensional Studies at Alfred University and curator for the Museum of Luminous Phenomena, Tschida crates luminous instillations and conceptual light work in neon and glass. In Tschida’s solo exhibit of kinetic neon sculptures he plays with perception. Through the viewer’s sense of time and optical phenomenon, rotations of bright neon build revealing the three dimensional form. As each neon line revolves, it creates a form over time.

I'm fortunate to have been taught by Fred at Alfred University in 2000. He inspired me to continue working in neon in the UK.
