Park Seung Hoon
Born in 1978, Seung Hoon Park lives and works in Seoul, South Korea.
Korean artist Seung Hoon Park weaves strips of film together to produce visually intriguing compositions where a fragmented world comes together in complex arrangements. Throughout the series, Textus, his unique approach redefines the typical landscape in mosaic style.
To create the unique photographs, Park uses positive 16mm movie film that he cuts into strips and loads into a large format camera. "When processed the result is a mosaic of films, like a detailed patchwork composed of an inextricable labyrinth where the eye can get lost," he explains. The final image is a blend of mediums: both photograph as well as woven textile. By threading m the film together, Park creates beautifully captivating scenes with textured distortions. The composition instantly comes together as a whole, but upon closer inspection, the details of the tiny squares reveal incomplete parts and unexpected divides that make the final results even more exciting.
