Hannah Su’s Night-Lights
If you haven’t yet seen Hannah Su’s amazing charity/artwork night light pieces, you’re missing out. These works of art take Hannah about 40 to 60 hours of work, and are entirely handmade! Hannah tells us that she was inspired by Disney to make these night-lights, largely because it “takes us back to a happier time.” As you can see in the images below, each night light has a theme from a different Disney movie.
Hannah will donate all the night-lights she makes to patients in the Child Life Program and the Children’s Home Society of NJ, both places that could do with a source of light and beauty all the more during this pandemic. The children are essentially stuck constricted to their rooms due to quarantine, and Hannah hopes to “bring them some sort of solace during these tough times”.
Donating and creating breathtaking art isn’t the only goal of her project; in fact, Hannah also hopes to better “understand art in the context of greater society” through her work. She mentions that the work she is currently doing is much different than studio work, so this is a learning experience as well. Congrats Hannah, and good luck!
