Jong-Sun Bahk's lighting transcends the idea of a functional object. The shadows cast by the glow from within the pieces imbue the spidery frames with life, creating a whimsical and otherworldly presence. One writer, describing Bahk's work wrote, "Bahk's lighting is not an artificial source. It is an object that is satisfied with the light itself."
Bahk, formerly a musician, works from a farm building converted to a modern carpentry studio with all the necessary amenities -- musical instruments, a sound system, records and a coal stove. He incorporates audio elements into his work and is fascinated by the processes of creating, amplifying and reflecting sound.
