The Illumination Show

Neon Works by Lauren Booth

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 by asking world leaders whom she admired to write an inspiring word or phrase for the show. Participants include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Bono, Bill Clinton and Oprah. Booth has turned The Lab into a distinctive, reflective space for this special installation.
