Seung Hoon Park


Armed with a large scale camera, the Korean Seung Hoon
Park composes surprising urban views. Based in Seoul and
puzzled by the demographic explosion of the second largest
city in the world, he builds, assembling lots of shots of a
same frame, photographic mosaics depicting the liveliness
of a city whose population quintupled in a half-century.
Named Textus, the series is presented as an unlimited
text or weave. Writing, as weave, is a no-end experience.
Tirelessly, the thread and the text can stretch themselves
infinitely My project Textus tries to show the
complexity of the nowadays cities.
