‘Impermanence’ is about an idea that all the matter including all the life forms collapse in our spatial-temporal dimension we belong to. The conceptual idea was inspired by the second law of thermodynamics.
Seung Hwan Oh works and live in Seoul, where he was born and raised until moving to New York where he studied film and photography at Hunter College. His work and practice stems from his i interest and approach towards other disciplinary thoughts and ideas, from philosophy to sciences. His most recent work, was inspired by the notion of the first advent of vision in life on earth, and his most current work focuses on implementing microbial growth on film as a means to explore the impermanence of matter as well as the material limitations of photography.
