Dukno Yoon - suspended wings

Aren't Korean metalsmith Dukno Yoon's Suspended Wings (2002-2004) sculptures incredible? I love the concept of wearable sculpture, particularly ones that are as delicate and beautiful as these. As he explains about the impetus for these works:
Although the recent series, segmented wings have been focused on the formal challenge to engineer an intricate movement that simulates bird wings, these works are intended to be a series of poems in which I develope my own formal language, interpret the nature of wings, create various structural forms with movements, and share the metaphor, imagination, humor, with viewer/wearer.
