This is Seo Young Deok’s latest work of art: a larger than life sculpture of a human head made of a mile of bike chains. It took him a year and more than 25 000 pounds to complete the work.
The detail of the the face and the emotional expression is astonishing. The artist earned a degree in Environmental Sculpture at the University of Seoul, which is probably where the idea of up-cycling old bike chains came from. ‘Dystopia’ is going to tour the world, heading to Istanbul at the moment.
