Inspired by "Nighthawks" by Edward Hopper

Edward Hopper’s (1882-1967) painting Nighthawks (1942) was inspired by a specific restaurant in New York, but maintains a universal timelessness that transcends its locale. Viewers observe the scene from the outside through a large plane of glass, their eyes pulled in by the eerie fluorescent lighting. This vantage allows one to observe the four anonymous characters within—their individual contemplation speaks to a sense of isolation, a subtle critique of the changing modern world.
