What Appears Through Disappearance by Seung-Hwan Oh

image

I just discovered something great and had to share it with you all. This time I am admiring some beautiful photographic creations, in particular, a series of photographs called ’Impermanence’ by Seung-Hwan Oh. The collection is inspired by the second law of thermodynamics and explores the ideas of temporal dimension, disappearance and disintegration.

Impermanence’ is expressed through microbiological practise, where a film is submerged into water filled with various types of bacteria that slowly destroy it. The artist obtains different results by controlling the conditions for each photograph. And those results are captivating: human portraits become blurry or even unrecognisable due to the disintegration of the film. The colours change creating beautiful dreamlike colour palettes.
