The Ribbon

The Ribbon

 

‘The motivation to create shapes of flowing ribbon was rather simple. It was an attempt to celebrate the fluidity of flexible OLED, a miracle of modern lighting technology.’ Min sang CHO

 

Min sang CHO's sculptural light installation, entitled The Ribbon, combines OLED and 3D printing technology, processes designed for precision manufacturing, and responds to these systems with craftsmanship and a desire for artistic experimentation.

 

The Ribbon is 3D printed in a basic form before being manipulated by hand to make each piece unique. Following traditional techniques of Korea, gold leaf is delicately applied to each piece of ribbon to heighten the light reflection of the OLED. In preparation for the creation of The Ribbon, Min sang CHO spent time in Korea to understand the art of gold leafing from a fifth generation master artisan.
