The Written Roof: Sukkah NYC
Drawing on the primacy of the written word and the ephemerality of the physical structure in the Sukkot tradition, we invite New Yorkers to construct their Sukkah through writing.

At the beginning of construction, the incomplete Sukkah is a steel frame, a writing lectern, and a supply of paper strips hung on the walls. As thousands of paper strips are hung from the roof grid, the roof of the Sukkah gradually takes shape. Color coding by length guides the placement of each strip. The completed Sukkah shelters celebrants under a swaying, fluttering cloud made up of the messages and prayers of their fellow New Yorkers.
