Wall Art Made From Thousands Of Beads And Pins

 

A visual art form that is difficult to classify, these wall hangings are part mural, part sculpture, and have elements of tapestry and bead work. They are essentially made of materials from the fashion industry – beads, buttons, sequins, and thread.

These are the creations of Ran Hwang, who describes the process of building the large installations as time consuming, repetitive and requiring manual effort. She hammers thousands of beads and pins into wall panels and this provides her with a form of self-meditation.
