To create each of Seoul-based artist Seung Hoon Park‘s images for the series Textus, Park chops up strips of 8mm or 16mm film and weaves them together to create larger images that depict well-known and iconic landmarks and buildings from all over the world. In doing so, each image emits an otherworldly quality—one part a definite representation of a specific site and one-part entirely fantastical.
After creating these “tapestries,” Park uses an 8×10 camera to create a more texturally seamless, cohesive surface. The image is smooth, as we would expect, but it has the feel of a woven textile, like an archaic tapestry that once hung in the castle walls of our photographic memory.
