 One of the key aesthetics to a good grimy motel theme is neon signage. To fulfill this, I used neon flex on a mirrored mount to display the party name upon arrival. The flex was also bright enough to cast a strong pink glow over the bed for photoshoots.

SLO'MOTEL NYE 2018

I was invited to do lighting and some installation for the 2018 New Year's Eve party at The Ace Chicago. The Motel Themed, queer-centric event, held in The Waydown, was hosted by the monthly dance party Slo'Mo, hence the name Slo'Motel.

    The rest of the room was flooded in hot pink thanks to a series of flood lights and hot pink gels on the exitsing lighting in the room.

    And finally, to bring the neon feel into the rest of the room, I lined the undersides of the bars with neon flex, which not only lit the room, but people's outfits as well.
