South Korean artist Lee Hyung Koo has combined modern art with body modification in a series titled The Objectuals that will make you rethink the human body.
The series is said to be inspired by an extreme over-analysis of modern beauty standards, using odd manipulation and magnification techniques to distort the human body and features. The longer you look at these works, the more unnatural and disturbing they seem. At times he even experimented with these body modifications in public locations, and studied the reactions of people.
The freakishly distorted images look like cartoons until you realize they’re real people and their body parts.
