Lotte World Tower

Lotte World Tower is a 123-floor, 555-metre supertall skyscraper in Seoul, South Korea. Its silhouette quickly became one of the city’s modern-day icons. Looking from its base up at the immeasurable sky, your head starts spinning. It takes real courage to walk up its entire height. The kind of courage the Korean female divers have been showing for generations of their endeavors in the dark depths of the sea.

The Diver

Shedding light to the dark depths is an age-long human desire. Korean female divers have submerged in the blue heart of the sea for centuries. They keep diving for food, exploring, mapping, disappearing. And it is this untiring endeavour, courage, and resolve of theirs the 17-metre long installation The Diver, floating in the interior of Lotte World Tower, is dedicated to. Designed by Maxim Velčovský, it consists of thousands of manually blown bubbles of glass mounted to a skeleton of steel.

Under the surface

“The idea was to get this sculpture, The Diver, consisting of 18 thousand glass balls, into the air. It is placed in the Lotte Tower, one of the tallest buildings on the planet, and upon entering, you see this six-metre diver, swimming above you.”
