Who says that Asians don’t age? Today, as I bid farewell to yet another year, being shoved kicking and screaming closer to that 40 mark (gahhh!!), I can see the effects of aging in subtle things. The lines that are starting appear in photographs around my eyes, the forgetting of little things, the increased amount of recovery time after a full wedding day…aging, it happens to all of us.
To watch it happen in 4 minutes, in a beautiful digital rendition, gives new meaning to growing old gracefully. Korean artist Seok Jeong Hyeon, known as ‘Stone house’, has created this timelapse, digitally illustrating the aging process of a woman from beginning of life to end. Watching him meticulously draw each stage of life on top of the previous and as he adds lines and shadows, you can appreciate not only his deftness with the digital brush, but the subtle nuances of the aging process from the full chubby cheeks of a baby to the wrinkled face of a mature woman.
