Korean-born Chul Hyun Ahn, who now lives and works in Baltimore, combines the use of colored neon lights, mirrors, and other industrial materials to create light sculptures. Drawing from Optical Art (Op Art) and theories of the subconscious, he explores the immersive, illusory possibilities of reflection, particularly through the use of two-way mirrors. Railroad Nostalgia and Tunnel each explore architectural spaces. Peering into either portal, the emitting light sculpture creates the illusion of infinite space that extends deep into an uncharted territory.
