The Yun-Woo Choi newspaper sculptures have been made on behalf of the Korean artist. Now based in New York, Choi works with discarded newspapers and magazines when putting his installations together.

Choi accords these exhibits with structure and form by way of wire and resin. The materials come together in swooping swirls, enabling the designer to put together clean circles and twists.

These pieces are as much intellectual as they are beautiful. The published papers allow viewers to take in what was once current, providing a window to news-worthy events of days past. He has in this way provided a voice to historical moments that have in many regards been silenced by the passage of time.
