Fragmentation by Bohyun Yoon
Materials: live models, plexiglas mirror

There are unlimited numbers of reflections of truncated legs, torsos, and arms, which visually connect and create a linear pattern. This provocative image of the depersonalized body is juxtaposed with the development of modern science that enables people to alter their appearance through surgeries or cloning.
The cover art for The National’s upcoming album “Trouble Will Find Me” is a cropped and rendered image of this picture from artist Bohyun Yoon’s installation piece titled Fragmentation.
For their last album, “High Violet”, The National used sculptor Mark Fox’s piece titled The Binding Force.
