Folded Bike Chains Become Life Size Art Figures

Young-Deok Seo welds hundreds of folded bike chains to create life size figures.

The Korean artist starts his work with a sketch, which he then digitizes to create a 3D model. Next he creates a full-scale rendition from clay, which serves as both his foundation and mold for the welded chains.

Despite the many bends and curves of the chains’ hinges, the final forms perfectly outline the intricate details of human ears, torsos, and hands.

Check out this Korean artist exhibition curated by Liquid Art System at Abbazia della Misericordia until mid-April 2019.
