Artist Statement

The Detroit Sukkah is conceived as a modular system of interlocking simple timber components that aggregate into a place of refuge during Sukkot. Walls are assembled to create screens of densely layered lattice-work for privacy and screening from daylight. Working with a prescribed architectural system predicated on the repetition of a single module allows for quick assembly and reuse of material that can be reconfigured into various Sukkah forms for years to follow.
