Do Ho Suh was born in Korea and graduated with a degree in oriental painting from Seoul National University. He then headed to the United States to pursue further studies in the arts. He is mostly known for installation art that changes the way viewers perceive public space. For one of his projects, he created a floor sculpture made of numerous plastic human forms holding up glass panels. Visitors are encouraged to step onto the glass plates to make it seem that the tiny human forms are propping them up. You can see his work up-close in an ongoing exhibit at Singapore Tyler Print Institute. See the details below.

Here are some photos of Do Ho Suh’s work:
