Berlin-based South Korean artist Jeongmoon Choi creates vibrant and futuristic installations using thread, metal frames, and UV lights. She illuminates and arranges these threads throughout rooms and across walls where visitors are welcome to wander.

The threads are woven into metal frames, and the black-lit lighting helps to enhance the illusion of depth. This illusion raises larger questions about the definition of space and dimension, and has visitors feeling like they’ve fallen into a futuristic rabbit hole.
