Imaginary Spaces Within: A Conversation with Soo Sunny Park
by Jan Garden Castro
Starting with ordinary materials such as chain link
fencing, Soo Sunny Park's sculptures and installations
"catch" and interact with natural light. In a radical
twist, changing light, rather than the work itself, is
central to the viewer's experience. Park's most recent
work reconfigures normally hidden construction
materials such as rebar chairs, which support rebar
within concrete, and metal lath, which reinforces
plaster walls. Viewers entering her installations find
themselves within consciousness-altering spaces that
combine changing perspectives with concepts from
physics, geometry, psychology, and aesthetics.
