To prepare for their joint exhibition at Young Art, Cara Benedetto and Davida Nemeroff went to Las Vegas together. The idea was to make separate work, informed by a shared experience. The photographs Nemeroff took of a couple involved in a tense conversation at a Vegas bar are pretty affecting. Originally taken with an iPhone, Nemeroff re-photographed the images as they appeared on her phone, so you see the crack from her screen. Then she printed them on backlit vinyl so that they glow.
