Kyle Bean for Dr. Oz The Good Life Magazine

Kyle was commissioned by Dr. Oz The Good Life Magazine to illustrate a feature article about Microbiomes. By using thousands of tiny beads as his medium, he wanted to get across the sheer number of these microorganisms that make up our bodies.

As well as the opening type treatment, Kyle was asked to construct a human figure, brain and gut all constructed in the same manner. Each model was hand sculpted with Fimo before being covered in spray adhesive and then scattering the beads over it.
