Christopher Short is a Santa Fe-based artist who likes to play with light. His physical creations include stylized agave [detail video of the light tubes], hanging boxes, and little fire tubes. He has created award winning laser shows. He also plays with ultraviolet lasers on glow-in-the-dark screens.

Full disclosure: Christopher Short is a friend of mine.

Those fire tubes are fascinating, though I get the sense that the video doesn't do them justice.

Christopher Short, Laser Artist,

Santa Fe, New Mexico, eh? I bet those agave lights are UFO beacons.
