Visual inspiration, fiber, textile structures, installation, encaustic, and always the question-does wax make it better?

Korea Day 12-flashback to Do-Ho Suh

Some/One 2001 Do-Ho Suh
This morning we visited the Deok Su Gung Palace. We arrived just in time for the changing of the guard. When I saw this fellow in full dress, I had a flashback to the first time I saw Do-Ho Suh's work at the Seattle Art Museum. I wondered if maybe this was some sort of inspiration for his 2001 work, Some/one. Mostly he talks about identity and the body, but I couldn't help thinking that maybe this was visual origin? I could be totally off the mark. I found a great interview with Do-Ho Suh with lots of wonderful photos of his work at designboom.
