“Hidden Presence in ‘The Square’” by Larry Frum


An idyllic landscape. A bustling cityscape. Yet, there is something else in these photographs.

Most imperceptibly, two hands hold up a mirror reflecting a bit of the surroundings and still becoming a part of the overall scene.

Photographer Seokmin Ko’s project, called “The Square,” introduces the reflective surface into seemingly normal surroundings in an effort to get people to “reflect on how we are living in the physical world…”

Select works from “The Square” will be included in the anniversary exhibition, “Art Projects International: Twenty Years,” scheduled to open in New York in November.
