These neon-looking lamps by Marcus Tremonto are real, but they are also illusions.
Marcus mounts the wires on a reflective plastic surface. Here, the reflective surface is on the ceiling, surrounded by a black frame. But how are those wires on the end of the globe supported?
This lamp seems to float above the ground in the space next to a mirror.
When you look closer, you see you’re only seeing half of an actual lamp. The other half is a reflection, created by inserting the wires through holes in the reflective surface.

I am also amused by his pixel bulb. (You sit in this chair after flying this kite>>)
