Do Ho Suh’s “Fallen Star”

Tipped off this morning about this extraordinary new sculpture on the UC San Diego campus.

From the site for the Stuart Collection, UCSD’s high-power collection of site-specific works (Jenny Holzer, Kiki Smith, and Nam Jun Paik to mention just a few).

Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star is the 18th permanent sculpture commissioned by UCSD’s Stuart Collection. It reflects Suh’s on-going exploration of themes around the idea of home, cultural displacement, the perception of our surroundings, and how one constructs a memory of a space.

It’s also an audacious bit of engineering, so to set it on the roof of the engineering building is an added bit of genius.
