Sine/One 2001 Thousands of military dog tags.

He wants the dog tags to symbolize each individual’s identity, all combined to create one larger- than life figure.

  • Do Ho Suh:
  • Korean artist
  • Born in 1962
  • Works in NY and London
  • Struggled with his identity after moving from Korea to the USAto further his career in art.

He likes to explore the idea of size and the symbols that objects can have. He questions the identity of people working together and working as individuals.


40,000 dog tags used in this piece. When a soldier passes away the family is given their dog tags so in a way, this robe symbolizes the many soldiers who have died in wars.
