Ghostly Household Objects Turn the Mundane Marvelous

The objects in our homes are the things that sustain us from day to day and help keep us alive and comfortable, yet we rarely stop to admire their forms. Sculptor Do Ho Suh makes it possible to enjoy household fixtures as objects of design and even beauty.

The Specimen Series is a set of polyester sculptures which look like common home objects: a toilet, a bathtub, a refrigerator, a radiator and more. The lightweight, transparent sculptures look almost like three-dimensional X-rays or ghostly, floating apparitions.

Seeing any familiar object cast in a completely new and unexpected light helps us to see aspects of the object we would not ordinarily have noticed. These household fixtures, so bland and predictable in our own homes, become beautiful, delicate works of art with the help of an artist’s imagination.
