Karma: Sculptural Installation by Do Ho Suh

Published Nov 19, 2018

‘Karma’ is a large-scale sculpture by Korean artist Do Ho Suh featuring a number of stainless steel men stacked on top of each other and covering their eyes.

“His work continually questions one’s identity and individuality by using the human body. These stainless steel men, though recognizably different entities, appear to move as one. While the piece is open for interpretation, it makes one question whether the idea behind it is to present the figure of a man blindly following in the path of his ancestors before him, who have risen a step closer to the heavens with each new successor in the lineage.”
