Art light installation or photography? Well unless you knew they were part of a series called ‘Starry Night’ by photographer Lee Eunyeol you’d be hard pressed to know for sure. What Eunyeol does is construct elaborate light installations made to look like the night sky has been flipped over, upside down, with the twinkling stars and planets nesting inside tall grass or deep within cracks in the ground. Then he takes the shot. Here’s what he has to say about his work:
Starry night expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space. I’ve chosen analogue type for the expression which attempts to install electric bulbs in an object to be expressed using back space of night by taking advantage of huge studio. There are two spaces in photographs. One is a space before electric bulbs of familiar landscape are installed and the other is a space after electric bulbs expressed by dispersing personal emotion are installed. Unified light from these two spaces generates a mysterious landscape.
