Filippo Venturi Made in Korea

Filippo Venturi Made in Korea | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Until the ’60s, South Korea was almost a mediaeval country, poor and underdeveloped. After just 40 years, South Korea is now one of the most advanced countries in the world.
In 2015 I crossed the country, starting from Seoul, reaching the Northern border and then heading towards the extreme South-East until Busan and then coming back through the Western territory.

Photographs Made from Woven Film Strips by Seung Hoon Park

Photographs Made from Woven Film Strips by Seung Hoon Park | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Part collage, part photography, part tapestry, these fragmented interpretations of iconic buildings and landmarks by Seung Hoon Park (previously) are truly something to ponder over. Each image begins with 8mm or 16mm camera film strips which he lays down in rows to create a larger surface that effectively acts as a single piece of film. Park then exposes two images in a large format 8×10″ camera using sets of vertical and horizontal strips which are woven together to create a final print. The photographer has traveled to locations around the world including Rome, Milan, Venice and Prague to shoot images for this ongoing series titled Textus. Several limited edition prints are available through Susan Spiritus Gallery.

Adventures in Classic Korean Cinema: BETWEEN THE KNEES

Adventures in Classic Korean Cinema: BETWEEN THE KNEES | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Many films have examined this dichotomy, including Early Rain (1966), which I previously covered in Adventures in Classic Korean Cinema. However few have done so as aggressively as Lee Jang-ho's Between the Knees (1984), a fascinating and frustratingly paradoxical work from the Korean New Wave. Both progressive and surprisingly conservative, it's a little hard to peg exactly what director Lee's angle is at different points of his film.

Emerging Photographer: Sanghyuk Yoon | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Sanghyuk Yoon, a South Korean photographer who is working on an M.F.A. at the School of Visual Arts, has spent much of the past year photographing plants and outdoor scenes around Manhattan, the outer boroughs, and New Jersey. Yoon told me that when he first saw Stuyvesant Town, in Manhattan, he was “struck by the sense of oasis within the chaos of the city. The fountains, the manicured lawns, the well-maintained flower beds. It reminded me of the artificial, hidden world of ‘The Truman Show.’
