We’re used to the idea that long distance relationships are sad and difficult. For those of you who may have experienced them, you know they involve countless hours on Skype, a lot of determination to synchronize and great communication skills to compensate the lack of physical presence.
However, these two lovers did not resign and turned their long distance romance into art, through photos which are half made by her daily experiences and the places she’s at and half by his. Danbi Shin, currently living in New York, and Seok Li, based in Seoul, take photos of what they are doing during the day, in spite of the 14-hour time difference, and create collages.
The project is called “Half&Half” and it helps the artist duo ShinLiArt explore how the environment we live in can shape our existence and how similarities between cities and lifestyle can be found, especially when the protagonists love each other.
