because that world is like the invisible world of the wave. Since our souls
live there, the imagery of that world and the forms are eternal. Nothing
disappears or dies. It is like looking at the hologram. I want to show the
imagery and forms of these worlds through a window of holographic film. I want to show that there is a dark hell, a world of purgatory and a world of beautiful and eternal heaven that are invisible to our eyes.’
Ray Park explores light and spirituality using various media, especially
holography. He is working on making the world of the soul visible
through hologram windows.
Ray Park has exhibited widely in South Korea including solo exhibitions
at 175 Gallery and Seoul City Hall. He was invited to the MIT Museum
exhibition ‘The Jeweled Net: Views of Contemporary Holography’ in
2012 and has participated in four group exhibitions with the HoloCenter
