Do Ho Suh’s use of fabric has a number of different origins. Most directly, he was looking to create a “suitcase home,” that he could pack up and take with him and erect anywhere in an attempt to live in the presence of the places he had left behind. Fabric is light and packable, and it has an ethereal, translucent quality that hints at the structure’s transience; it is a representation of a memory that still feels like memory.
