The images in 10Ne were shot over the course of a year in New York City. Although neon is the focus, elements in the background remain visible to take emphasis away from the signs themselves, and draw subtle attention to the environment.
Neon is most visible in the dark. As such, these images are fragments of a night wanderer’s story. Where are they? What are they doing? What are they searching for? The human figure at the center represents the marriage between the art and the artist themself. They are the obscure observer, the vessel through which all these images came from. Within these environments and removed from them all at once.
10Ne is the atomic number and symbol of the chemical element Neon.
