People choose to make their artworks in an infinite amount of ways, but fantastical landscapes created in 200-gallon tanks of water and photographed on a Hasselblad are something we’ve never come across before. To make them, Kim sets up his enormous tank and builds an entire landscape within it, using dry ice or water and some gel-covered lights to turn his manufactured world into a strange, hazy reality.
Although the behind-the-scenes set-up shots of these incredible dioramas look a little like a scene from Se7en, you can’t deny the mystic beauty they emanate. Personally I like art to take me somewhere else entirely and I think this is almost as close as you can get to being transported to a new land.
