Personal Histories: A Conversation with Do Ho Suh
by Sandra Wagner
Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star is a 70-ton house teetering off the roof of the Engineering School at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). Living and working in New York, London, and Seoul, Suh has created a body of work that consistently addresses tension—between home and migration, individual and collective, reality and illusion. Fallen Star, which is the most recent addition to UCSD’s Stuart Collection, expresses all of these dichotomies. From its seventh-floor access, a brick path curves through a garden to the front door.

Fallen Star, 2012. View of work at the Stuart Collection, University of California, San Diego.
