52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

Week 34 #49. Tiny World

6 Comments

A wonderful way to whittle away tedious hours of waiting for flights to depart is to enjoy the artwork many airports display. In the International Terminal at San Francisco Airport is a wall covered in thousands and thousands of 3 x 3 inch handmade tiles by Korean artist, Ik Joong-Kang, who began creating them while commuting  long distances to his part-time jobs during his student days. The artwork contains 5,400 unique tiles, measures 120 x 270 inches, and is a mixture of various media which includes canvas, wood, tiny toys, and other odds and ends. He also incorporates words and images on his tiles. It’s a fascinating piece of art and I was happy to idle the time away taking photographs and discovering the tiny treasures each tile offers.
