Seeing a Styrofoam cup stuck on a fence one day got Park thinking about the chain links properties of being both rigid and porous, of acting as a boundary while retaining an appearance of openness…
Explains Park, “Like a net, the sculpture is a filter that is meant to capture the light that is already there and force it to reveal itself. Now we can see it, the light, in purple shadows and yellow-green reflections that both mirror the shape of the fence and restructure the space they inhabit.”
