NEW WORK BY KACIE LEES
SAD Pows (Seasonal Affective Disorder Neon Lights) cluster together to combat the blues in the foyer, while Neon Hearts amass in the living room offering a palpable warm glow. A shift in tone from emotionally saturated to staggeringly hallucinatory occurs when diffraction lenses come into play. The lenses release a sub-visual spectrum, splitting the radiance into lenticular harmonies that densifying the visual ether.
