Wooksang Kwon is majoring in Visual Communication Design at Kookmin University in South Korea. Kwon’s previous major was Interior design, and recently he became interested in tangible materials that can be used to make interactive graphic matters.
Song installed changeable word modules which represent an image of the college of design. Song turned on the lights at midnight for two weeks, then watched how they were changed by students. A few days later, the words were redesigned by students and Song took photos to document them.
The inspiration for Designer's Light came from noticing how unextinguished lights, could be a feature and a symbol. Abandoned fluorescent lights, that were used for illuminating art, could be shown in a new context. Students who were using lights temporarily, did not always take care of them. Song decided to install lights where students could see them and be inspired to create meaningful words under the lights.
All module systems were designed with Adobe Illustrator. All photographs were retouched with Adobe Photoshop.
