The Book Planters of Do Myoung Kim
Ah (sprout) – Ah (ego) 2004
The Google Cultural Institute is a concentrated “effort to make important cultural material available and accessible to everyone and to digitally preserve it to educate and inspire future generations.”
A healthy component of the Institute is the Art Project, where Google has partnered with hundreds of museums, cultural institutions, and archives to bring their collections online.
One of the organizations on board is the Korean Art Museum Association and lucky for us their holdings include a nice sampling of work by artist Do Myoung Kim.
As Kim’s work reminds us there’s a lot of life in those books.
