ARTIST STATEMENT:

A pothos plant can only grow and build because of the support of it's other leaves. The people of Chinatown do an excellent job of living by this lesson. After working in Chinatown for a year I wanted to create something that captured the feeling of community shared by everyone living there. I shot some of my favorite locations showcasing a broad range of people from the community. Then loaded the same film back into the camera and shot a couples dance class at a local studio. I wanted these neon figures to symbolize the invisible communal energy created by Chinatown's residents.
