Transit from John E. Bannon on Vimeo.

Documentation of a neon sculpture I made for the Chicago Transit Authority Headquarters.

Twenty-two neon tubes suspended in the atrium of CTA Headquarters simultaneously describe three images celebrating four aspects of the transit authority. When viewed from below, Transit depicts the CTA train and bus system maps. Looking west from the lobby mezzanine, an elevated train appears to depart a station, while the north-facing image is a CTA bus arriving at a stop. The title, Transit, reflects both the subject matter and the action the viewer takes to see the three neon images. It combines the illusion of two dimensions in a three-dimensional space and the illusion of three dimensions in a two-dimensional space, resulting in a four-dimensional work of art.
