Unwoven light by Soo Sunny Park

Guys, I have a special treat for you today. Angela Walley from Walley Films is kind enough to send me updates of their latest projects, and let me tell ya, it’s always such a nice surprise to see her emails in my inbox. Today’s post is no exception.

They recently documented Soo Sunny Park‘s amazing installation Unwoven Light, which is currently on display at the Rice Gallery in Houston (you lucky Texans!).

Here’s a little description of this installation:

Soo Sunny Park’s installation Unwoven Light animates Rice Gallery’’s expansive space, transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant color. Suspended from the walls and ceiling, thirty-seven individually sculpted units are arranged as a graceful, twisting flow of abstract form. Entering the gallery there is no set path to follow. Instead, we are invited to meander slowly as one might stroll along a river’s edge, stopping to admire the glints of light that dance on the water’s surface.

I am swoon over this. So magical! The way Soo Sunny Park managed to put all the pieces together is stunning, it seriously looks as if she was able to trap light and turned it into mouldable sheets. Are you all over this?

Watch the video below (which by the way, it’s a Vimeo staff pick! Woop, congrats Walley Films) and get ready to feel all goosebumpy:
