Amazing Installation Art by Ran Hwang

Ran Hwang is a Korean artist who creates larger than life installations of birds and cherry blossom trees. Each and every red dot is made up of a pin and a button. No adhesives are used, so the button can slide up and down the pin.

The amount of work that goes into each of Ran's installations is nothing short of amazing. She is passionate about her artwork and relates the installations to the existence of human beings. She relates the mobility of the buttons to the human tendency to be irresolute. She also says that she choses to use buttons because they are common and ordinary just like the existence of human life.

Ran finds peace in creating these large installations and finds that she discovers significance of existence in hammering the thousands of pins into the wall.

I think that it is so inspiring to see someone who is so incredibly passionate about her work. Knowing that the artist really put their heart and soul into their creations really makes the actual art inspiring to me.
