These sculptures have incredibly been made out of bicycle chains

South Korean artist Young-Deok Seo has quite an impressive portfolio of metal sculptures, but these massive figures from his Meditation series clearly stand out. Seo, who graduated from Environmental Sculpture at the University of Seoul, takes lengths of bicycle chains and welds them to form heads and other sculptures of the human form. Some of his works took over a year to build from bought or discarded chains.

"I believe my work is an expression of the restless lives of people living in the times of high-technology civilization," he explains on his website. "I cannot deny that we are living in complicated connections with infinite information in this century. I see the links of chains as the connections between information, which also resemble interchanges in brain circuits."
