The symbiosis between film matter and organic matter resulted in this conceptual body of trippy art.

In his series Impermanence, South Korean artist Seung-Hwan Oh creates surreal distorted photographic portraits by growing emulsion-eating fungus on his film.

Oh first allows the fungus to partially destroy the developed film in a process that takes months or even years. He then digitally prints the distorted images (the film is too fragile to print in an analog process).
