ABOUT







Mary Ellen Carroll

Designer, with Chester Jenkins, of the bespoke typeface Indestructible Language. Chester explains: The Precipice Alliance, a non-profit corporation collaborating with artists to direct public attention to global warming, launched with this inaugural artwork by the contemporary artist Mary Ellen Carroll. This lettering was a collaboration with Ms. Carroll to design letterforms that could be rendered 8-feet tall in neon tubing. Each neon letter was to be placed, in a 900-foot-long installation, in the window bays of all five former American Can factory buildings in Jersey City, New Jersey to be exhibited from November 2006 to April 2007. The 8-foot high, carbon neutral neon letters were clearly visible (and legible) to drivers on both the Pulaski Skyway and the New Jersey Turnpike, and by planes heading to and from Newark International Airport.
