Do-Ho Suh is a Korean artist who is probably most recognized for his installations relating to some of the various places he has lived.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
