We all know that lasers are cool. Statistically speaking they’re cooler than David Hasselhoff, Madonna and ice put together. Yessir. But what about threads posing as lasers? Just how cool are they exactly? It’s not a question that had ever crossed our minds until we saw the work of Jeongmoon Choi, a Korean artist who uses UV lighting and coloured thread to create striking installations. By shining UV rays onto geometrically arranged luminous threads Jeongmoon transforms galleries into spaces that resemble retro gaming grids and complex light shows. Tron fans take note, this is the fine artist for you!
