These delicate paper sculptures created by Korean artist Ho Yoon Shin appear to to vanish when viewed from certain angles. Each fragile sculpture is made of hand-cut paper and those paper strips joined together to make it looks like one whole entity. Moreover, the paper strips provide a fluid opacity that changes dynamically according to perspective – making them fade in and out as one walks around the sculptures.
Shin’s artwork is inspired by Buddhism and the philosophy of emptiness and the void. He said, “Looking at a solid body made up through several layer, we get to know that the system of the body is organised rather dangerously than strangely, and the system looks like the contemporary society. And its vacant surface and inside are getting filled with our inherent images to completion. In the end, it’s a story about the situation and a point where we fill a surface that doesn’t exist… and console and satisfy ourselves.”
