Behind Creative Collision




Meekyoung Shin is an artificer of sorts - this Korean sculptor creates convincing 'translations' of actual artifacts. The only difference to that of a replicating craftsman (which is a whole industry in its own right) is that she uses soap instead of fine ceramics and burly stones.

The visual illusion created by this art is also a feast to be seen. Flawlessly created, including the rustic details that one might think only time can forge. Perhaps what this work suggests is the distinction between the permanence we instil within such objects - antiques that last for ages - and that which could melt away with a splash of water.

But without having felt and even crushed such an object, it is hard even to peruse a simple concept such as this; in this case, seeing is not believing.
