The Glowing Homeless

The Glowing Homeless

Fanny Allié created human silhouettes out of bent neon tubes. She then installed them on park benches around New York City in order to bring awareness to a sometimes passed-over fixture in New Yorker’s daily lives, the homeless. Ignantblog.com says “Using the warm glow of the neon tubes, the artist creates an alluring object with the aim to bring light in to the darkness of New York’s parks and to change people’s attitude from avoidance into curiosity so they are drawn towards the figure on the bench.” [haha]
