Illuminating the Cracks Beneath the Earth

In many of these Starry Night installations by photographer and installation artist Lee Eunyeol, it looks like the core of the earth is cracking open and brilliant lights from below are gradually rising to the surface. The Korean artist creates these elaborate light installations that feel as if he has turned the sky upside down and placed the stars into the grass and trees.

The artist says, “Starry Night expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space.” He finds wide, natural spaces and installs electric bulbs into natural objects. In doing so he says, “Unified light from these two spaces generates a mysterious landscape.”

Eunyeol is currently showing photos of this series at the Gana Art Space in Seoul.
