Artificial Sunlight

Human Movement Series

My work uses neon light to map peoples’ stories, histories and lives. While we do it in very different ways, the National Trust also preserves these things, so working with them has been an interesting experience. Using the tour of the house as the starting point, I photo-documented a staff member traversing the tour route and translated that into a neon map. The piece embodies the owners, staff and visitors throughout the house’s history, while the spiral shape is inspired by the spiral patterns found in the house’s décor.
