Incredible Thread and Wire Sculptures by Yong Won Song


Korean artist Yong Won Song creates life-size thread and wire sculptures that look like scribbled drawings come to life. Somewhere between a dream and a nightmare, fantasy and reality, the artist's pieces explore the unconscious mind. Taking the perspective of a writer merging real-life experiences and creative imagination, Song assembles surreal sculptures that also lie somewhere in between realistic and artistic.

The artist says, “My work attempts to present ‘a world of dream' as a combination of unconsciousness and consciousness.” His augmented scenes visualize figures and objects as fragmented subjects. They are incomplete in their presence, reflecting the haziness of one's memories of their dreams. Song's sculptures are representations of unconscious, scattered thoughts that one tries to piece together in a lucid state.
