“Strung Out” Original Works by Hong Sungchul
Yesterday, along with the rest of America, I watched the sad events in Boston unfold. Having a daughter who is the same age as the now apprehended perpetrator, I am heartbroken for the future he now faces, but more so for the dozens of victims of the actions he took. The fact that an average citizen tipped off the police to his whereabouts reminds us to be attentive to our surroundings.
Like piecing together a series of clues, South Korean artist Hong Sungchul creates three-dimensional sculptures/photographs made of string. The pieces consist of hundreds of printed on elastic strings that when lined up together, display an image. The strings are strung on several rows giving the pieces varied depth that is both delicate and beautifully presented.
Indeed, Betsy, and you allude to the much larger dilemma that we’re now facing. Yet, my point is that there is so much that we can do to protect our way of life, but only if we quit giving it away . . .
I’m saying I agree that you can’t change people. Im not a woman that believes you can. But you can pity them which is actually the most insulting thing of all. I pity that young man. But I am sorry he or anyone is so full of hatred. A microcosm of a bigger problem. He just executed on the hatred in a public and incredibly destructive way. Tip of the iceberg.
Weird? Do you mean my text or Betsy’s?
“Change,” you say. Change was the irony (read: joke) that I was trying to convey, particularly following your simpering little reverie. Obviously, I failed.
However, please understand that this little “72 virgins”-seeking psychopath would kill you and your daughter without giving it a second thought! Who cares what his life is going to be like?!?
You and your ilk should wake up now, for these boys are NOT playing around!
Incredibly fair points. Thank you for responding. One correction though, I don’t think people change.
weird text (by the way, presumption of innocence seems lost these days), but interesting art
What was that? ” . . . apprehended perpetrator, I am heartbroken for the future that he faces . . . ” It must have been quite a push for you to add, ” . . . but MORE SO for the dozens of victims.”
Please tell me how much MORE SO are you heartbroken, particularly less than twelve hours after the capture of your Islamic Warrior (read: murderer). You could have at least waited twenty-four hours, huh?
Worse, you tie your featured artist’s work into the implications of this horrific act of terror as if you were performing the infamous “Rosemary Wood’s Stretch.” Pathetic.
We either should have droned that boat in the backyard, or had your daughter marry this Jihadist puke, hoping to change him, of course, as all women do.
