1000 doors and a lot of plasticPosted: March 19, 2012
The city of Seoul is always under construction so South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa has created a shielding screen for a building under construction. Jeong-Hwa used 1000 brightly coloured recycled doors to create a screen for a 10-storey building, at the same time turning it into a visual delight. The artist felt that by using discarded doors in the installation he could retain something of the memories and the daily routines that these doors once were party to. He says: “There were lives that used to pass through those doors.” 1000 Doors is also a means to engage the greater city population on the possibility of making “normal” things appear extraordinary.
Above is a selection of some of his wonderful installations from around the world.
