Couple Makes Long-Distance Relationship Work By Creating Combo Photos Of Their Lives

Published 4 years ago

Long distance relationships can be hard. So why not ease the burden with a cooperative art project? “Half&Half” is a project by the duo ShinLiArt. The couple snaps pictures while they’re on video chat, and later compose them into one. Two halves join to show that while the lovers might be miles apart, they are still together.

SihinLiArt is composed of Danbi Shin, currently based in New York, and Seok Li, based in Seoul. There’s a 14 hour time difference between their locations, but that’s no barrier for love – or art! Plus, the proceeds that come from their art projects are donated to art education.
