At first glance, these dice figurines by Korean artist Kim Hyun seem like a miracle of physics. The life-sized sculptures were constructed by running thin wire through the dice; Hyun used plaster casts of actual people as a guide to achieve the incredible accuracy and detail. The sculptures adopt multiple positions and use dice of multiple colors, making them an eye-popping exhibition of artistic brilliance.

Encased in glass displays, the floors surrounding the sculptures are littered with the remnants of plaster casts and hundreds of die. The installation is appropriately entitled "Dice Cast Dice" and is currently on display in Hyun's native Korea.

Implications - Art that is inspired by human life and uses the human body as inspiration relates to a wide variety of viewers who are consumed with the way others perceive our species. Artists who use a variety of materials to recreate the human body are popular because the meaning behind this art is subjective to interpretation by the consumer.
