Ön, Soner. The Light in the Dark with the Neon Arms. New York: S. Ön, 2011. Print.
Soner Ön says his artist’s zine, “The Light In The Dark With The Neon Arms”, was inspired by religious pamphlets, with their imagery of light breaking through clouds, that he came across daily in Flatbush, Brooklyn. All the images he selected for his artist’s zine were lifted from Google image search results for ‘God’.
“The Light In The Dark With The Neon Arms” takes its name from the Kate Bush song “Symphony in Blue”:
“When that feeling of meaninglessness sets in,
Go blowing my mind on God:
The light in the dark, with the neon arms”
The sixteen page, seven by ten inch, Risograph printed, edition of 200 speaks to the strong religious culture in poorer Brooklyn neighborhoods and the search for God in the age of science and technology.
