Standing on the masses

By Abraham Piper

If you look at this installation by Do Ho Suh at the Lehmann Maupin gallery from a few feet away, it doesn’t look like much — just a few square feet of glass floor…

But then you get closer and look down at it… What is this?

You still can’t tell, so you crouch down for a better look…

Wait a second–

This is supposed to be a metaphor, isn’t it?
