Proposal for a neon text piece for Lincoln Central train station

I've been doing a lot of things this year, it's been an adventure.
And thoughts turn to ideas for art projects I'd do if I were commissioned.
Several thoughts have merged for this.
One is a desire to use neon, travels on trains, train stations, and Tracey Emin's piece at St. Pancras, but with my own concepts and research.
So I've been playing with some conceptual ideas for neon text works for Lincoln Central train station. All concepts copyright the artist.

These have come off the back of an application for some funding that wasn't successful for some more exciting commissions to greet residents and visitors to Lincoln.

"And our heroes have misplaced their map"
Another spin on a proposal I've had in mind for a couple of years now.
Re-imagined as a neon text piece.

This piece based on The Midnight lyrics, pop culture, and references Lincoln's unique skies, local photographers capturing the beauty of sunsets, and the Cathedral on the hill.

The Midnight lyrics - Lost Boy - references nostalgia for lost magic, and also the Cathedral, shining like fool's gold on top of the hill.

Slightly different contextual pop culture reference, lyrics from Nina's 80's Girl captures the romance of train stations, of meeting long lost lovers, and 1980's romance.
