Ran Hwang creates beautiful installations using pins, beads, buttons & sequins on panels. The installations look as if they are alive. 


Ran hammers each bead & pin by hand, a repetitive motion she says is "self meditating" 

Hwang describes the process " The process of building large installations are time consuming and repetitive and it requires manual effort which provides a form of self-meditation. I hammer thousands of pins into a wall like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen."

Ran Hwang will be exhibiting some of her work at Leila Heller Gallery at Art South Hampton from July 26 - July 30. 

Please take a look at Ran Hwang's website for more information & photos of her work.
