Fallen Star on Jacobs School of Engineering
(meet your guide near the stone bear at your ticket time)

A small home appears to have been picked up by some mysterious force and dropped onto the seventh floor of Jacobs Hall at UCSD. Artist Do Ho Suh?s exhibit Fallen Star reflects his 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. Both very public and extremely personal, the unique space requires you to adjust, both mentally and physically, to your surroundings. As you explore the tilted miniature home and surrounding garden you also explore the concept of how your home and your culture become a part of you, and the disruption and displacement caused by a change in environment. Susan Goulian and Mary Beebe, Director of the Stuart Collection at UCSD will be your guides. As an added benefit, those with tickets for this experience during the lunch break will have the opportunity to interact with speaker Sarah Susanka, a thought leader for the ?Not So Big House? and ?Not So Big Life? movement.
