Bicycle Chain Sculptures

Based in Seoul, South Korea, Yeong-Deok Seo’s sculptures are absolutely stunning, not to mention incredibly expressive. His realistic models are comprised of bicycle chains and industrial steel links carefully sculpted and welded together to mimic the human body.

His work is in response to the growing obsession with the mechanical world. According to Seo, everyone is consumed with their arbitrary devices and themselves, resulting in a race of incomplete humans that lack emotion. It's a dark interpretation of the modern day human.
