PP TREE INSTALLATION by Tom Price
Do Ho Suh. Cause & Effect.
This giant tornado of piggybacked men is an installation by Korean artist Do Ho Suh that is currently on display at Western Washington University (photographs above depict it in alternate configurations). Via Western:
“‘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.”
Suh has been all over the news lately with his recent Fallen Star Lands installation in San Diego, and his Floor piece in Singapore. See many more views of this piece and other works here. (via the stranger, korea.net, herry lawford) (
