Otherworldly Textiles in the Knitted Sculptures of Sangmin Oh #ArtTuesday
The large sculpture installations of Sangmin Oh create entire alien environments. Here’s more from COLOSSAL:
Supple textures meet bold hues in Sangmin Oh’s elegant Knitted Light series. Drawn to relationships between sculptural forms, textile techniques, and architectural elements, the Netherlands and Korea-based artist developed a collection of soft lamps designed to suspend from the ceiling or sit on chunky, rough-hewn pedestals.
Oh founded Osangmin Studio in 2021, which “focuses on observing trivial and small empty spaces” like the corners of rooms or nondescript alcoves that can be elevated with the addition of color, shape, and illumination. The Knitted Light series takes inspiration from the diversity of sea life and coral, evoking scaled tendrils or slim funnels. The fixtures often appear to float in the dark as they transform from standalone objects into glowing, functional installations.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
