Private Project

Light and darkness

Se Yoon Park was born in Gumi, a small city in South Korea, in 1979. He spent most of his childhood and adolescence in Changwon City, where rapid industrialization took place in the 1980s and 90s. The contrasting influences of rural life and drastic industrialization led him to develop an interest in issues such as light, darkness, time, and life. In 2014, he began to work independently at a small workshop in Brooklyn, New York. Reflecting on the lives of the people who inspired him, he aspired to become an artist with a strong and distinct voice. Projects such as Light, Darkness and the Tree, Passage of Time and How Architecture Works IN are the outcome of the contemplation of the words that he takes most seriously: light, darkness, time, and life. He hopes that these works will advance his powerful growth as an artist.
