Hong Sungchul

In a series of work entitled String Mirrors, South Korean artist Hong Sungchul creates three-dimensional sculptures/photographs made of string. The pieces consist of hundreds of printed on elastic strings that when lined up together, display an image. The strings are strung on several rows giving the pieces varied depth that is both delicate and beautifully presented.

The segmented images of faceless bodies and intertwined hands are mesmerizing with surprising detail and appear almost lifelike. I’m sure viewing the work from different spots gives the viewer unique perspectives that a photograph just can’t do, making me want to travel to see them in person.
