The monumental and almost geological artwork of Chun Kwang Young is astounding look at, even more so when you learn that each piece of these sculptures are comprised of individual, handmade pieces. To create the works, which are called aggregations, Young wrapped styrofoam triangles in hand-dyed mulberry paper, tying each with string. Individually, the wedges are reminiscent of how medicinal herbs were stored  during Young’s childhood in Korea, but when taken together on such a massive scale, the works seem more like planets or seismic events.
