Fallen Star: Finding Home

Directed by Vera Brunner-Sung and Valerie Stadler, 50 min, digital video, 2016

Perched atop the seventh floor of the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego, Do Ho Suh’s “Fallen Star” has become a beloved landmark. Its planning, however, required years of effort and innovations in architecture, construction, and engineering. Why did so many people get behind such an improbable idea, and work so hard to make it a reality? A story of collaboration and the ways that art can surprise you, Fallen Star: Finding Home takes us behind the scenes in the creation of the 18th public artwork in the Stuart Collection.
