My Neon Fortune Teller is Dani B's attempt to translate neon signage from a medium that is traditionally static to an interactive playable art piece that the participant can generate their own significance from. The sign draws from on the intrinsic magic of neon signs, which you may find adorned to many psychic storefronts. The outputs of the fortune teller are programmed to have no real pattern or control over them, giving the participant a gamble with divine destiny. The artist hopes everyone finds the answers they are looking for.
Dani comes from neon roots in Las Vegas, her grandparents ran a commercial neon repair shop in Sin City which her father & uncle worked for. Growing up she was trained to spot neon signs with the potential for them to repair. She studied Biochemistry and graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2015, immediately after she moved back to Los Angeles and rediscovered her love of neon signage from driving through the streets of LA late at night. She became consumed with the thought of how neon signs were made and decided to seek out learning the craft. She received a tool box containing the remainder of her grandparent’s old neon bending equipment & started an apprenticeship under Juan Ortega. She is still learning how to be a proficient glass bender but is happy to finally find an area of intersection of all her skills & passions.
