AM Light

Ideas the shine



Once the world’s foremost producer of shirts, the commission commemorated this part of Derry’s history with a series of neon shirts that adorned the windows of a former shirt factory.

Derry Lumiere, 2013

In the winter of 2013, an incredible year of arts and culture in the city came to a close with a four day celebration of light. A spectacular raft of installations and projections was brought in to illuminate Derry’s buildings, streets and bridges. AM Light was appointed as the sole neon contractor, responsible for the manufacture and installation of four unique pieces.



A total of 12 shirts, each 2 metres tall were manufactured.  Various colours of neon tubing were used throughout.
