Do-Ho Suh: Dan McCafferty

Do-Ho Suh produces pieces that involve extreme precision and mass amounts of objects combined to create one. Suh says that he uses his own personal space rather than public space to show his art. Much of his work has to do with Korean culture. The interesting part is that most of his pieces are very large but the items used are very tiny. The small objects are usually people related such as dog tags, human figures of portraits. When they are all combined they create a sense of community or people coming together.
Most of his installations relate to architecture and definition. I can not pinpoint what movement it would fall under but I feel like his sculptures mimic types of Korean paintings. A lot of his pieces have a variety of color and some focus on a certain color such as red. Some of this inspiration could have come from his father because he was a painter.
