I’ve recently become acquainted with Korean artist Do Ho Suh’s work, both online and in person this past fall at Lehmann Maupin Gallery’s exhibit of his work. However, these two installations are new to me and both appeal to me very much. Floor, which was recently exhibited at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute, consists of almost 2,000 plastic little men pushing up on a walkable glass surface, trying to prevent being crushed. These small figures en-masse deal with individuality and collective force, a running theme in Suh’s work. Similarly, his installation Cause & Effect, a tornado-like structure made up of thousands of piggy-backed figures suggests, once again, that there is strength in numbers.

Cause & Effect is currently on display at Western Washington University.
