Charcoal installations by Bahk Seon Ghi

Korean artist Bahk Seon Ghi has an eye for the sublime. His suspended sculptures hoist charcoal pieces up by thin nylon threads to form shapes that suggest they are more solid than they appear to be. While charcoal is seen in many cultures as being symbolic of purity and cleansing, Bahk apparently specifically chose it for the fact that it is really transformed wood.
