F/ART supports Artissima 2018 through the design and the production of neon exhibited in the DAF Struttura, the exhibition centre around which the program of the Artissima Experimental Academy is organized. It is an interactive exhibit: the neon sign will vibrate and change colour intensity according to the vibrations of sound and melodies experienced during the workshop.
