Pae White’s neon installation, C≈K¥◊CH∆RMS‡ (Lucky Charms, 2014) — one of Remai Modern’s recent key acquisitions — has been adapted for the museum’s interior stairwell. The neon installation, conceived of as a form of light therapy to offset Seasonal Affective Disorder, was designed for the museum, using a unique design software coded by the artist herself. *** Pae White (b. 1963) is an American visual artist.
