Do Ho Suh “Passage” 3D X-Rays?June 23, 2016

There is a wonderful exhibition in town at the C.A.C. The show is up until September 11, 2016 and I urge everyone to see it. The show is titled, “Passage” by Do Ho Suh. He is a Korean-American artist and creates these wonderfully sewn objects and constructions out of transparent fabric. The amount of detail that is hand sewn into each piece is amazing. Every little head of each phillips head screw is sewn by hand. I photographed his life-sized toilet sewn out of fabric and included two shots below. I didn’t realize until I looked at the photos, why I was so fascinated by it. Then I realized it was because it looks just like a three dimensional x-ray as you move around it. See if you agree with me if photos below reveal how much they look like x-rays.
