It’s Electric [boogie woogie woogie]
With all the talk of Barneys’ Electric Holiday campaign I’ve embraced this holiday season as being one with a contemporary edge. Between walking the streets in Chicago and New York I’ve been seeing the retailer’s glowing black shopping bags and modern Disney caricatures everywhere – bravo to the person who decided to put Minnie Mouse on a Paris runway in Lanvin and Mickey in Balenciaga.
Tis’ the season to opt out of tradition and forget the conventional tree and light up lawn decorations. Instead, use fluorescent light fixtures to spread electric holiday cheer. Embrace the urge to be innovative and look towards artists like Dan Flavin and Anselm Reyel who utilize fluorescent light as a medium in their work. Here are a few others who I am looking towards for inspiration in my quest to fashion a Christmas tree out of glow sticks and a light bulb wreath.
