Director Michael Gugger presents a metaphysical exploration of light featuring neon bender Thomas Wendler and the voice of James Turrell. Gugger says, “This is a personal project born out of my mild obsession for neon – the 5th most abundant gas in the universe. An element created in stars. An inert gas that when electrified reveals itself in the form of seemingly physical light.”
