TEI SPEAKS: ” thank you so much for lending your eyes to my pictures for a few moments of your wonderful colorful day i hope some of these things may have caused you to think fun or weird thoughts and i would love to listen to you in any way that you may want to share things you want to share at any time!!” Tei Park is an A1 hooman bean and one of Tunnel’s rolling artists. You can check out more of her work here, and find out more about our rolling artists/becoming a rolling artist here.
Tei Park maps the human body in a mixture of mediums, including thread, magazine cutouts, muslin fabric, and gauche. TEI ON HER WORK: No idea where this sudden urge to draw body structures came from, I don’t do Grey’s Anatomy or Bones or House or TLC’s Untold Stories of the ER, no interest in surgeries and absolutely can’t handle blood, but these organs are simply the most fascinating things I can think at the moment. Can you believe all these things inside you are working and moving all the time?!?!?!? I drew a few that I liked, and might expand this into something big, but right now my images don’t really come close to what envisioned because they’re just parts and they’re so flat. Like maps!
