Neon Lights


Perhaps the most magical discovery of my summer was the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton. The renovated firehouse and former church is home to Flavin’s breathtaking nine works in fluorescent light. Conceptualized as a space where the light sculptures and architecture could become one unified whole, the installation truly embodies the phenomenal power of Flavin’s work. Around each bend is a surprise bold geometric gesture of fluorescent light where you could almost linger forever watching the effects shift and change. Surrounded by a series of attention provoking contrasts I pulled on my own bright yellow neoprene jumper by Jacquemus, that too begged to be seen. The onesie of my neon dreams was culled from the downtown New York gem, Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Color, light, and form upon me from every direction, here my senses were enlivened on high.
