Do-ho Suh is a Koreanartist from Seoul born in 1962, he strives to challenge his viewers to continual question there ideas of personal space, and there own identity and individuality in today’s increasingly international, globally centric society. Through his installation‘Cause & Effect he attempts to put a spin of many piggybacked men in a form of giant tornado. The installation has been on display at Western Washington University on June of this year.
“Cause & Effect’ evokes a vicious tornado. This vast ceiling installation is a composition of densely hung strands that anchor thousands of figures clad in colors resembling a Doppler reading stacked atop one another,” said Do Ho Suh, adding that the artwork is a “physical realization of existence, suggesting strength in the presence of numerous individuals. The work is an attempt to decipher the boundaries between a single identity and a larger group, and how the two conditions coexist.”
