theStudio Artist of the Week…

Sungfeel Yun, London


Sungfeel Yun’s works are a freeze-frame of his unique and technical process; using magnets, he manipulates iron filings into extraordinary shapes, sometimes subjecting them to rust and erosion. This intricate method is further complicated by a time limit: Yun has only three hours to create perfect filing formations until the soft resin in which they are suspended rapidly hardens and ceases their movement entirely.


What caught our eye was Yun’s Cosmos and Chaos series, depicting the vast expanse of the solar system and the micro world of atoms which have something in common; both worlds rotate around the same axis. However, this link does not mean that there can be no change- since all things in the universe are to a degree always active. Furthermore, whether great or small, they are in no way moving at their own whim but in balance and reaction to one another.
