Artist petrifies time in exquisite soap sculptures

Artist Shin Mee-kyoung has a playful time recreating historic artifacts, and she does it with an unusual material -- soap. The purpose of her creations, however, is not that simple despite her use of a common household item.

"Time flows like liquid, and I want to petrify and capture the flow," she said during a press preview of her solo exhibition, "The Abyss of Time," at Arko Art Center Gallery in Seoul on Thursday. "I've been working on how to visualize the time flow in a cultural context."
