Bicycle chain sculpture

I have blogged about Ai Weiwei and his wonderful use of the bicycle frame in his sculptures, and now I have come across another artist, Yeong Deok-Seo from Korea, who uses bicycle chains to create sculptures.

You can see his facebook page here,

His goal, as far as I can tell is to compare "the standardization of modern life to the monotonous repetitive movement of the chain in its original function." I'm not quite sure thats a good thing, but while the chain performs a very mundane function it does give the user some sort of freedom and expression in both cycling and Yeong's sculptures.
