The Specimen Series is downright impressive. A collection of everyday objects that have been replicated using a nylon fabric, this art installation is incredibly original despite its focus on the ordinary. In fact, it is this ordinariness that really makes this art series stand out. It makes viewers look at the things that surround them with fresh insight.

Created by New York-based Korean sculptor and installation artist Do Ho Suh, the Specimen Series is part of his Home Within Home exhibition, which is currently being shown at Lehmann Maupin Gallery. Each nylon sculpture is a replica of objects in Do Ho Suh's New York home. The Specimen Series is comprised of shower heads, door knobs and more.
