Glass Floor Supported By 180,000 Little Plastic People

This is a glass floor supported entirely by the combined effort of 180,000 little plastic people. It was constructed by South Korean artist Do Ho Suh and at first I thought all the figurines were women and the floor represented the glass ceiling, but then I realized I got high with the bartender on my lunch break and I'm reading way too far into things. Oh shit, oh shit -- this popup says I just won an iPad!

Hit the jump for several more shots from various zooms.

Thanks to Christina, who claims she once balanced on a single beer bottle which I find infinitely more impressive.

    I'd love to transform really small, small enough talk walk in-between the legs of these guys and explore underneath there, a game of hide and seek would be great!
