Bridging Home by Do-Ho Suh Brings Different Cultures Together

The Bridging Home art installation looks like a giant decided to plop his souvenir from Korea down for a break during his travels only to get it stuck between two large homes in a Northern English City. Lodged in at an uncomfortable angle, the Bridging Home installation is the work of Korean artist Do-Ho Suh.

As a replica of a typical Korean house, the Bridging Home art installation literally bridges homes while bringing cultures together. My Modern Met notes, "The juxtaposition of one's personal, safe space, located within a very foreign and impersonal environment raised questions of cultures and traditions." While the image created is quite jarring, the Bridging Home installation provokes thought in a way that might positively change people's perceptions of who they are, where they come from and more.
