Expression Through Neon – Three dimensional light.


Roger borg split stack 700px

Artist Roger Borg expresses himself through the not-so-often-used medium that is neon.
Borg’s inspiration comes from the inherent characteristics of the mid-nineteenth century light source, taking its traditional flatness, two dimensionality, seductive colours and most importantly its malleablility of shape and by breathing new life into it.

Borg challenges the core aspect of the typical lamp.

Traditionally, their illumination is dependent on an interior light source, concealed and diffused through an exterior, whereas Roger’s lamps are the light, generated directly from their exterior surface.

The light does not hide behind a typical shade, but rather emanates from its external shell.

The need for an interior bulb is rendered moot. The bulb is now the shape, the shape is now the light.

The results are a collection of fun t-shirts and limited edition art prints – purr-fect for displaying a combined love of cats and cult movie characters!

A unique CD package – Wandering Pleiades

DSC_4700

Pleiades is a Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing female group. The group was founded in May 2006 in Thessaloniki, in order to contribute to the diffusion of the Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing.

Kostas Bartsokas designed their first album “Wandering Pleiades”. The cd package is designed from a single cut craft stock without the use of any glue or plastic parts. It was printed with pantone black and white. The package is inspired by their clean – vocal only – music and reflects an earthly and clean tone which is emphasized by the stock color and feel. The six Pleiades sit underneath the bridge and sing their songs. The artwork references the old bridges of Epirus and some traditional patterns of Epirotic knit ware.
