This is really cool.

I've never thought of using a live person as part of a "sculpture", but it makes a lot of sense... It could be counted as surreal photography as well, there are often a lot of intense setups and props in those

Very intriguing. I've always loved skeleton keys. We lived in an old Victorian home that had the original electrical wiring for light switches when I was about four years old... and I found the skeleton key above the door in my bedroom. ;) I've loved them ever since. The latex looks great, and it's a neat concept.

I do kind of feel a little let down by the background because the figure and placement of the keys are just so amazing.

It was just the group studio in the sculpture building at school. I'd have rather put him somewhere else but I didn't have the opportunity at the time.

It happens. It's still a fantastic concept, to be sure.
