Mong Long Mong (2007)

3 min 45 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

In a twist on the traditional concept of the wishing well, a series of coins are dropped into a plastic funnel, a popular amusement which spins the coins to dizzying effect, before they eventually drop into the central hole.

Seung Yul Oh " well known for whimsical art works that toy with scale and exist somewhere between spectacle and participation. Long resisting a conventional approach to form and material, he redefines and challenges ordinary objects and spaces in ways that are both light hearted and serious."—Starkwhite
