Floor is an art piece that features 180,000 plastic figures holding up a glass floor that’s able to support the weight of viewers. It was created by South Korean artist Do Ho Suh and can be seen at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute. I love the concept, but to be honest I just don’t trust these tiny plastic people to hold up their end of the deal. It vaguely reminds me of the first and only time I’ve ever tried crowd surfing. It was at my kid sister’s spring musical. I was so touched by their rendition of ‘Jimmy Cracked Corn’ that I climbed my fat ass on stage, closed my eyes and leapt. Either those 8 year olds couldn’t support my weight or they’re just a bunch of @$$holes because I totally landed face first in the orchestra pit.
