Hong Sungchul, currently based in Korea, uses lines as the main element in his works while also reflecting the regularity of parallel. He turns photographs into three-dimensional works of art by printing the photographs onto a series of elastic bands that he then aligns at varying depths. By doing so, he displays both the physical and mental flexibility the viewer can have while observing his works.

Shane Pennington is a Dallas-based artist and a founder of AURORA, the largest outdoor new media arts festival in the United States of America.
Pennington’s works engage the balance and fragility of essential dichotomies. Between the ephemeral and the enduring, nature and the human construct, Pennington’s subjects are often skewed both metaphorically and physically, prompting their viewers to contemplate life and its meaning from an alternative perspective. His use of many media and textures, especially copper wire, allows for a diverse artistic language. The resultant works conjure an energy that reflects upon life, death, and universal consciousness.
