Do Ho Suh is renowned for his site-specific installations that manipulate scale to emphasize the malleability of space and examine the issues of cultural identity and anonymity. Suh’s training in traditional Oriental painting and his mandatory service in the South Korean military have significantly influenced his work. In his 2003 work Some/One, for example, thousands of military dog tags are amassed in an interlocking pattern to form the larger silhouette of a traditional Korean robe, illustrating the way individuals are used as building blocks to shape a collective whole. via : artsy                   .
