In 2004, after making a neon sign as a Valentine’s Day gift, Lauren Booth began working regularly with neon. She created The Illumination Show, which premiered at the Mattatuck Museum in 2015, by asking world leaders to write an inspiring word or phrase for the exhibit. In 2017, Electric Menagerie opened at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, UK. Booth created an illuminated sculptural trail through the magnificent grounds including neon birds, dragon, a flea circus, and more. The goats grazing in the Mattatuck Garden were created for that exhibition.
