VICTOR ENGBERSTHE NETHERLANDS
The laws of science tells us that glass is unable to emit light. Artist Victor Engbers chose to ignore the laws of science and went on a quest to make the impossible possible. He found out that uranium-glass (which already exists for over 2000 years) lights up in UV lighting. The glass lits up in a green fluorescent color. Victor teamed up with a professional glassblower to create an entire Greenhouse of this uranium-glass.
