Powerful Wire Mesh Portraiture

Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park is a bit of a perfectionist. His highly intricate work with wire mesh is breathtaking, and these photos probably don’t even do them justice. The videos convey the level of detail much better, but the process is best described as planes of wire mesh spaced several inches apart, over which Park superimposes a subject via a projector, then slowly prunes to reveal a stunning portrait. Beautiful and compelling work like nothing we’ve ever seen.
