Although San Francisco artist Tom Loughlin works in various media, his language-based neon pieces are among his most poetic. This semiotically playful word sculpture features a mahogany hardwood base, hollowed to conceal the electronics, topped with hand-blown neon tubing. When illuminated, ‘is’ remains lit, while ‘nt’ blinks on intermittently, casting a warm glow and leaving the mind to ponder the unstable meaning of this four-letter word. Perfect for a bookshelf or tabletop.
