The cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) can be 100mm up to 1000mm long. They can be as thin as 3mm, but are more commonly found around 4-6mm. There is something mesmerising about them. They can be dimmed, though not easily. The result is sometimes surprising as they are prone to interference. CCFL use very little power and come in a variety of colours, as well as warm and cool whites. In an era of huge transformation of domestic lighting products, the CCFL would seem to be a contender vying for position. Though it is not the case. These experiments were made at Jason Bruges Studio.
