Choi Jeong Hwa's 10 Storey Art Installation of 1,000 Doors

In this massive public art piece, South Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa uses a thousand recycled doors to build this remarkable, visually stunning 10-storey art installation. More images after the jump.

Choi Jeong Hwa doesn’t know how to draw or paint, so instead he wanders the streets in search of discarded, but interesting things that people would mark as trash. He then expresses himself using these finds in a creative way, turning trash into treasure.

Over the course of his career, Choi Jeong Hwa has done a lot of magnificent large-scale installations. This 1,000-door piece was done in 2009 and is one of my favorite among his myriad of installations, transforming a lame looking building into an eye-boner of a structure. I wish I could’ve witnessed this in person. That would have been awesomesauce. Would probably listen to The Doors as I marvel at this beauty.
