SEUNGHOON PARK

GO BACK

Photographer SeungHoon Park displays an obscure side of hectic cities with the usage  of 8x10’’ large format camera, weighing 110lbs. His mosaic-woven-textile assemblages of positive 16mm movie films, cut and loaded in the heavy camera, have explored an essence of the complex world. Each tiny film captures the space undergone transformation, showing a chaotic appearance of world like what Parks says, “a detailed patchwork composed of inextricable labyrinth where the eyes can get lost.” One sublime world, however, exists beyond one single print simultaneously. Recording every change in the surroundings and reinterpreting them elevate the quotidian city into the mesmerizing metaphysical space.

 

The exquisite imageries of distortive reality show Park’s intention not to share his subjective impression towards the world with the viewers. His search of objectivity offers the viewers opportunities to communicate their flashbaks relevant to the spaces with the artworks. One of camera’s traditional function, timeliness, becomes disappeared during these interactions. Park investigates this consistency of unfolding and evolving individual stories, while leaving his fingerprints or misaligned pieces behind.
