Only the most capable creatives can create what feels like an entire parallel universe in a single room inside a gallery, but Korean artist Soo Sunny Park has made this tricky task her niche. Toying with light and space to conjure up waves of rainbows from thousands of squares of prismatic glass tied to a wire frame, she warps our perception of reality into a phosphorescent shimmer of what we know.
This short film captures Soo’s creative process, complete with all the strenuous construction and hours of manipulating wirer cutters necessary to create such an illusion. It seems like hard work, but the hours spent are undeniably worth it for the lightness of the final effect.
