Fanny Allie crafted this ingenious light display for the ‘Bring to Light’ show of 2011. As you can see from the pictures, her work, entitled ‘The Glowing Homeless,’ features lights bent into a silhouette of a homeless person sleeping on a bench. This display may be the first time neon lights have brought tears to my eyes.
While ‘The Glowing Homeless’ display was up, it was placed on a bench in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Its dimensions were 72in by 22in by 7in. If you examine these pictures thoroughly, you’ll notice that Fanny Allie created ‘The Glowing Homeless’ using two neon tubes. There’s just something so sad about looking at a lit up outline of a homeless man trying to sleep on a semi-comfortable spot.
