The White Light

2010-2014

This series has received an inspiration from The Lamp in the Paper World series. The Lamp was created to have a two-fold meaning. It can be considered on the one hand as a functional art piece, and on the other hand as an artistic product, as it can produce light, illuminating the space in which it is positioned.

With the intention of blurring the boundaries between art and design, the concept of The White Light emphasises that such boundaries are in fact illusory. The series consists of illuminative objects, each of which can give light and is made of white paper string. Whether the objects are art or design works is not as important as how people experience them. In other words, they are the objects of experience regardless of they being categorised as art or design works or as useful or not.
