STARRY NIGHTS, LIGHT INSTALLATIONS BY LEE EUNYEOL

Like a silent and powerful dream, visions of mysterious nighttime, glowing stars and fairy tale landscapes.

‘Starry Nights’ is a series of light installations created by Korean photographer Lee Eunyeol.


Using temporal photographic techniques, the artist installed LED bulbs in natural settings, such as trees, earth cracks, tall grass, creating a magic upside- down effect of glowing stars fallen from the sky to the ground.

‘Starry night' expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space. I’ve chosen analogue type for the expression which attempts to install electric bulbs in an objet to be expressed using back space of night by taking advantage of huge studio. There are two spaces in photographs.
 One is a space before electric bulbs of familiar landscape are installed and the other is a space after electric bulbs expressed by dispersing personal emotion are installed. Unified light from these two spaces generates a mysterious landscape. - Lee Eunyeol


Unfortunately, Euneyeol has no personal website to show his amazing works, but he is currently exhibiting at the Gana Art Center [Seoul, South Korea] starting this week.


Thus, magic Mother Earth roughly shines and radiates light and love from every corner.

Also thanks to Lee.
