Chain Gang

Thursday, October 20th, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Our love of bikes is well-documented. Our home, however, is conspicuously lacking in any evidence of our two-wheeled ways – aside from the spare set of wheels temporarily living in the office. Despite having artwork in every room, we are completely without creative representations of our beloved bicycle.

Perhaps this is why the work of Yeong-Deok Seo caught my eye this morning.

That, and, it’s just incredibly cool.

Working with an assortment of chains  – primarily those of a bicycle persuasion - this Korean artist constructs striking figure sculptures. The face shown above is a personal favorite, perhaps for the dining room?

I would love to know more about the process behind these works – but alas, I can’t find any translated insight. If anyone has any thoughts, please share!

For more work (and more detail shots) from Yeong-Deok Seo, head to the full portfolio. Let us know what you think!

    What I really enjoy about your dining room wish profile piece is how smooth the surface seems. You wouldn’t expect the medium to allow the finished piece to be so fluid. Pretty neat.
