Lightning Lamp by Jiyoun Kim

Published Jul 17, 2020

The Lightning Lamp is a clever personal project by award-winning South Korean designer Jiyoun Kim.

“‘Being struck by a thunder out of blue sky’ is an old Korean phrase describing people confronting unexpected catastrophic events. We often strongly desire ourselves to become individuals with the capacities to endure and overcome such events.

This might be the reason why writers, for more than centuries, enjoyed to translate these desires in forms of literatures and theatre, where the antagonists must conquer or overcome the conflicts through dramatic plots. Likewise, the readers and audiences also fulfill their superego of becoming one of them.

Lightning lamp is the item expressing these desires: we want to become individuals watching the scene above the clouds, not helpless victims under the cloud struck by the lightning. In other words, lightning lamp encompasses the message of overcoming challenges during lifetime by changing the outlook.”
