Might very well become my treasure. I found these glowing-orange-pink plastic rods wrapped in tape on the street in Manhattan. Irresistible. They’re around six feet long and weigh a ton. Yesterday, I figured out how to display the bundle on my studio wall and noticed that the tips conducted light. I thought something interesting might happen if they were scanned, so snapped one apart, set it on the glass, and let the light flow.

Thank you, Martha! Honestly, that was my response, too. The more I worked with them, the more intense it got. When I look at the green ones, especially, my feeling is “I want to live here.”
I believe this is Samm, hi and thanks!!
