Artist Do Ho Suh Creates Incredible 'Floor' Installation With Miniature Plastic Figures (PHOTOS)

LOOK: An Unbreakable Sculpture You Can Stand On

Korean artist Do Ho Suh has created an incredible sculpture using thousands of miniature plastic figures with their arms and heads turned upward holding a glass floor.

The construction is so durable you can even stand on it, notes TrendHunter.

The multicolored figures under the glass signify the diverse and anonymous masses of people who support and resist the symbolic floor, according to

Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, Do Ho Suh is known for constructing site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity. According to the press release, his work "explores the relation between individuality, collectivity, and anonymity".

Originally from Seoul, South Korea, the artist moved to the U.S. in 1991 to complete his BFA in painting at the Rhode Island School of Design. Since then, he's been traveling back and forth for work in New York and to visit his family in Korea.

Do Ho Suh's 'Floor' is on show at Lehmann Maupin's pop-up gallery at Singapore Tyler Print Institute until Feb. 11, 2012.

Other miniature piece of art not to miss is Spanish artist Isaac Cordal's tiny cement figures.
