No, there wasn’t a tornado throwing houses around La Jolla earlier this week. The airborne cottage spotted on the UC San Diego campus was actually the much-anticipated installation of artist Do Ho Suh’s “Fallen Star,” the latest addition to UCSD’s acclaimed Stuart Collection.
The home was hoisted atop the Jacobs School of Engineering building on November 15, with hundreds of onlookers snapping pictures of the spectacular sight. Our arts producer, John Menier, added his own spin with this lovely video montage of the events of the day. The footage will be part of a larger documentary we’re producing for University of California Television about public art collections on the UC campuses, including the Stuart Collection, UCLA’s Murphy Sculpture Garden and UCSF’s Bishop Art Collection. Stay tuned for that in 2012!
In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful video moment and check out all of our Stuart Collection videos online.
