The mountain viewed from distance may feel serene and slow, yet the small and fast elements comprise parts of a mountain and thus form the whole. Likewise, 'AVYAKRTA' is composed of small elements such as humans and trees, which move at gradual pace within abstract structure. The artist applies the technique of high speed cinematography in his artwork to represent the long-term process of transformation of human body and mind, and constant and eternal relationship between individuals and groups.
Sukjoon Jang, FLATCITY
The modern cityscape enclosed within the flat computer screen is perceived with the zooming in and out activities with mouse scrolling movements. Using a drone camera as its tool, 'FLATCITY' mimics the movements of getting closer and drifting away that are captured in the virtual reality within online map system. Images recorded in various locations are divided by each coordinate’s frame, and perpendicularly ambulate between the parts and whole of scenery to draw a novel, sensuous media-landscape.
