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.
