HOC Loves // Do Ho Suh

As an artist, Do Ho Suh is interested in the boundaries between public and private space as well as notions of global identity, space, nomadism, memory, and displacement. He is informed by his personal experiences in his work, particularly his move from South Korea to the United States as well as the specific domestic spaces where he has lived. Transparency also a main theme in the artists works this representing the layering of space and area in Korean architecture. What he ends up with are these crazy boldly coloured apartments, while super cool they are also seemingly eerie in their appearance.
