Airan KANG

Born 1960, Seoul. Lives and works Seoul

Airan Kang’s ongoing Digital Book Project explores the book as a symbol of human knowledge and its significance as a portal for information both as a physical object and in virtual space. The project asks questions about the future of knowledge, such as ‘How will we store information in the future?’
‘What bits of it will we value?’ and ‘Will we still absorb it in the same ways?’

Kang is fascinated by the way people’s lives are increasingly played out at the intersection of physical and virtual worlds. She is also interested in how we absorb knowledge through our senses and links our use of digital technologies to the notion of synaesthesia. This is a neurological condition in which two or more of the five senses normally experienced separately are involuntarily joined together.
