Open Source: Heesop Yoon
Heeseop Yoon created a large-scale public mural using her unique technique of rendering portraits of chaos using black masking tape on Mylar. Her mural is in Philadelphia’s iconic Italian Market, where she took a series of photographs and created a composition based on objects and personal items found in the neighborhood. Yoon portrays society through humanity’s accumulation of objects and the resulting clutter of consumption. Her technique does not employ traditional materials such as brushes or paint, and thereby pushes the possibilities of muralism.
