Intro Music: Boost by Joakim Karud


Outro Music: The Process by LAKEY INSPIRED

This is episode 12!  In today’s podcast we have the Austin, Texan artist Ben Livingston who is internationally known for his  neon/light sculpture. He is the inventor of an opalescent color palette for neon, using a variety of UV sensitive phosphorescent compounds and minerals. Ben originally observed these glowing compounds in New Zealand in 1985 which ultimately led to his signature work- luminous tubes he calls 'Nightsticks' or 'Spirit Antennae'. 
He’s a multi-medium artist of a variety materials and skill-set, a musician/songwriter, and avid storyteller as you’ll discover shortly. We get a great story of his neon journey, thriving in the face of recent health problems, and reveal of what goes into his opalescent color palette, which I hope will gift you with appreciation for the journey, and inspires you explore and play in your work and life.
