Korean artist Hong Sungchul’s creations of human body parts are from hundreds of elastic strings. He describes that string symphonies are a “representation of what ties humans together from the earliest stage of life – the umbilical chord.”
The figures often move and make noise, the aural resonance replicating the vibrations of the strings. They engage the viewers. Such an approach is something the artist attributes to his Korean heritage.
