SangSik Hong shows that drinking straws can have more of a purpose than simply helping a person sip their beverage. SangSik Hong has put together quite an intricate exhibition as his work takes on the form of human body parts.

Hailing from South Korea, SangSik Hong's plastic straw sculptures specifically revolve around body parts such as hands, lips and eyes. According to his agency, "His interest is focused on human desires [and power]. [...] However, the straw, contrary to the properties of power, is a weak structure, easily available to anyone for it is produced on a large scale and a disposable material."
