Seung Mo Park
Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park’s haunting portraits are spellbinding in their own right, but it’s only when you realise how they are created that they turn into something truly remarkable. Park begins each portrait by projecting a photograph over layers of wire mesh. Then he snips away areas of wire from each layer to create gaps of light and slowly (very slowly), an image is formed. This technique not only gives a new meaning to the word meticulous but it also gives the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph. This short video however shows the final effect pretty well.
