Electronically luminescent sculptures by Airan Kang

This is a really illuminated approach to art, a brilliantly novel idea created by South Korean artist, Airan Kang. Bright Books are ‘electronically luminescent sculptures cast from transparent synthetic resin’ and were made for her Luminous Words series. To realize this work, Kang traveled around the world to visit and photograph numerous bookstores and libraries in order to then recreate each environment in digitized versions. 

Luminous Words is another chapter of the Digital Book Project of the artist. She used over one hundred digital lighting books and new LED paintings to explore the ontology and evolution of the book as a source of knowledge in the digital era. By introducing light from within the sculpture, Kang removes the association with the object as an actual book, asking the viewer to contemplate the subject matter conveyed by the book’s title.
