Heritage, Mahjong and Neon Signs with Artist Juno Shen

For Juno Shen, a person whose health crisis took her all the way to Urban Glass, it's appropriate that a pivotal moment in her artistic career happened when she took up learning neon. Juno and Max talk about that seminal moment, the initial feelings of bending glass, along with the other projects that make her so recognizable to audiences, like her series of Mahjong inspired light sculptures and other types of Chinese iconography. They also touch on why neon is still an incredibly powerful way to create and touch on how dramatically supportive the neon community is at times.
