Epic Glass Floor Held Up By 180,000 Plastic Figurines

There are a million ways you could make your home just a little bit more epic. Some people make it look like a Star Trek inspired apartment while others take a more subtle approach and just switch out the living room carpet. If you are looking to impress people, you should really put your back into it. Sure, custom making everything in the Star Trek apartment must have taken years of hard work (and to know it might be disassembled is just heart breaking), but if you want to really make people’s jaws drop when they walk into your home, you need to do something really spectacular and original.

One approach might be to create an epic floor like South Korean artist Do Ho Suh. Don’t expect it to be super easy though since it might take you years to complete it. Why? Well, because the 40 tile floor piece is created out of 180,000 plastic figurines holding up the glass floor. It’s a marvel to behold, and the intense visual is something that will stick with you for days. Trying to place 180,000 figurines as close as possible to each other is one thing, but to model them all at the same height so they can hold up the glass might just be as epic as it can possibly get.

I mean, as an artist, what are you going to create after you have shown people this art piece? They won’t possibly be impressed by yet another “ordinary” painting, will they? I guess the only way to up the ante is to create something even more time consuming. But what the heck would that be? We’re talking about 180,000 plastic figurines holding up 40 glass sheets here. I am as impressed as I can get right now. Sure, there is always someone out there that will take things just a little further, but this is certainly worthy of the word epic in every sense of the word. I wonder if Do Ho Suh was a little bit hesitant to step on those sheets of glass when he was finished with the artwork to take a picture. It’s not like you could just redo it in a couple of minutes or so.
