    Colossal has this post on ‘Cause & Effect’ by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. The installation is a “giant tornado of piggybacked men” that will be on display at Western Washington University in June.

    Says the artist:

    ‘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.

    [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.”
