Do Ho Suh
I first came across Do Ho Suh’s work when I was researching some sculptural artworks for an essay, back in my 2nd year at college. I think this work and other works by the artist involving the cast miniature people are fantastic. The artist also creates large fabric environments that I have blogged about in the past. He is one of my favourite sculptural artists and it is great to see work that has a strong message whilst still retaining an element of humour.

I am a huge fan of Willie Doherty and the films he makes have inspired me to create a huge amount of work since I first saw them. His work makes me want to constantly work harder to create better, more polished work.

One coloured balloon (filled with a breath) suspended from the ceiling from white ribbon, a second ballon (filled with helium) fixed to the floor floating up on a white ribbon. The two balloons gently touch each other at approximately head height.
I think this work is great! It plays with the viewers perception in an interesting way, whilst also interacting with the space around them. I like the way it creates a distortion within the room questioning how gravity functions and how the ceiling and floor relate to each other.
