Bubbles and a monument to joy

The Flamingo Champagne Tower was one of the first such majestic neon installations in Las Vegas. But that’s the reason it became a discovery for me. Aren’t these bubbles familiar with a certain Polish project?

The bubbles so characteristic for the Flamingo Champagne Tower, created in the 1950s, remind me of “The Spray of Light” (“Światłotrysk”), a neon lemonade in Warsaw. See this similarity?

“The Spray of Light” is one of my favourite contemporary shining projects in Warsaw! The assumption of Maurycy Gomulicki, its author, was to create a monument to the joy of life. He did that. Every time I visit the Kępa Potocka Park and look at a giant glass with an animated “orangeade” sparkling there, I smile quietly.

I just loooove it!
