Born in 1969 in Seoul, Hong Sung-Chul completed a Sculpture B.F.A at Hongik University in Seoul (1994) before finishing another M.F.A in Integrated Media at the California Institute of the Arts (2001). Hong fully embraces modern technology and combines various medias in his work, often emphasizing interaction with his audience. In his most famous series, titled “String Mirror”, the artist prints images of people onto elastic strings to create ghostly three-dimensional sculptures, which communicate a deep desire for human contact in society. By developing wide range of works in various interactive media, Sung-Chul aims to generate relationships and reanimate communication with stunning visual effects that overthrow traditional forms of art.
