Below are three neon installations I created at Ball State University and Urban Glass in Brooklyn. I found that working with neon closely relates to the fundamentals of design. The first piece consists of donuts threaded onto two neon tubes suspended from the ceiling and is my commentary on the American diet. The second piece utilizes a 1950's toaster modified with neon toast and is a metaphor of the human psyche based off of Freudian studies. Lastly, my most recent project was created at Urban Glass with a focus on developing my lettering skills and serves as an ode to Sexual Revolution throughout the 60's, 70's, and 80's. As a designer, it is easy to get wrapped up sitting at the computer all day. Continuing my education with neon has been a tremendous opportunity to exercise my hands and mind beyond the computer screen.
