Artist shares her light with others … and it’s neon

Selena Carter was working in the Built Environment Applied Research Lab at Morgan State University, learning how to laser cut plywood. One day, she came across a piece of slime green-colored fluorescent acrylic in the lab and started thinking about how something like that would look lit up.

It took almost a year and many more signs after that to perfect her practice, she said.
