Kaleidoscopic visuals are displayed by the stunning beauty of the '64 CCFL' installation by Nils Volker.

The Berlin-based artist is a communication designer and a graduate of the Bauhaus University in Weimar. He is famed for his 2010 installation for which he built a device that created paintings from the sound of cars.

Völker's passion for art translates into his latest venture that is a stunning sight of hypnotic visuals. Interestingly, these lighting fixtures are normally used for backlights and computer screens. The internal light drawn from these fixtures is controlled by a power supply that dictates the height of illumination in each tube.

The installation appears to explode from the ground against a black background, and makes for an entertaining show of technology and art.
