February 26, 2012 - 1000 Doors



South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa created this 10-story art installation made up of 1000 used doors.

From an interview at the Creators Project:


Quote:
I attended Hongik Art School and started painting there. Around 1986 or 1987, I entered a contest and happened to receive the grand prize—a ticket to Europe. Basically, I made the paintings I thought they’d like in order to enter the contest and travel to Europe. When I returned, I burnt all my drawings and decided to never paint again. I accomplished my goal of winning a trip to Europe, but I was ashamed, and decided that from that point on I would use my work to portray only the things I truly felt. For example, I think construction sites are rough and alive, but I don’t want to paint them because I can’t seem to express those feelings in two dimensions. After I made that realization, I started to pick up things from the street and take photos of them.
Picked up from Colossal

Think of all the signs you could hang up inside...

- Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
- Please, close the door on your way out.
- Watch the first step

and song titles:

- "Open the door, Richard" (this one shows your age)
- "Behind closed doors"
- "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"

"Come into the garden, Maud"

The front door is open...



...AGAIN.



classicman  Sunday Feb 26 01:53 PM

Which one, dammit?



Lamplighter  Sunday Feb 26 02:04 PM

A whole new manufacturing opportunity...

First came dog doors and cat doors
Now comes bird doors



Griff  Sunday Feb 26 02:17 PM

When God closes a door, there's a fair chance another one opens up.

Think of all the money you could make there with just a bunch of string, pulling teeth.



SPUCK  Monday Feb 27 06:37 AM

Restroom? Yeah buddy take the third door on your right.



Spexxvet  Monday Feb 27 11:44 AM

Which door smells the worst? The odor.



monster  Monday Feb 27 12:02 PM

That'd keep the Mormons and JW's busy



ZenGum  Monday Feb 27 05:56 PM
