My favorite form of neon art is freestanding, three-dimensional sculpture.  Neon and argon tubing can be self-supporting when anchored by a custom or mass produced transformer base, benefitting from the lyrical nature of light drawn in space.  Freestanding sculpture can also benefit from illumination in either direct or indirect form using neon tubing as the source.
