Programme Notes

neon consist of boxes. Each box contains a pattern or groove: some are bright and shiny, others dark and grimy. All of the boxes can be fitted together, the patterns are built to interlock with each other in numerous ways. This is just one way of putting the boxes together. Tansy Davies

Reviews
