“Lite Brite” Creations by Airan Kang
Growing up in the 70’s, it was all the rage to have a Lite-Brite. I can still hear the song from the Hasbro commercial…”Lite Brite making things with light…Lite Brite!” Along with an Easy Bake Oven and a Sit ‘n’ Spin, it was a key component in one’s toy repertoire.
In a characteristically retro move, design maven Tory Burch actually commissioned an artist to take 2 million of those pesky bulbs to create her holiday windows last December. Poor Kate Spade felt scooped.
Artist Airan Kang sends a current through his work by encasing his favorite reads in illuminated binders. Quite the clever endeavor.
