As part of the Iconic Signage Project, organized by the Arts Council of New Orleans and Broad Community Connections, Candy Chang created a neon sign for F&F Botanical and Candle Shop. A family-run landmark in New Orleans for decades, F&F provides spiritual products, including hundreds of candles with titles such as Health, Win At Court, Release My Money, and Alleged Break Up. The old sign was redesigned to match this spirit. To emphasize the spirituality of the shop, the new candle on the sign was set with a motion sensor so it would “burn brighter” when people walk by. The owners liked the flickering flame so much, the candle now flickers all the time.
