Razor Ball

Gustave Mahlor Symphony No. 2, a sculpture made of razor blades, was inspired by the titled composer’s symphony 9 and 2 which tells the tale of resurrection, from death to life, which is deeply connected to Buddhist concept.

Jungsan uses the razor blades as a way to express the dichotomy of danger and beauty. The small nuance of the work is that the viewer is able to see their self reflected in the metal blades as a mirror.
