About Unit 1

Unit 1: 3583 Dubois is a site-specific art installation

inside an apartment in Detroit made by Anders Herwald Ruhwald.


Inside the installation, the structure and the sense of the interior seems as if it has been raged by fire. On closer inspection, visitors will realize the interior is made out of carefully crafted wood, metal, glass, and glazed ceramic. This dream-like installation embraces the transformative qualities of fire as destructive and constructive in relation to the domestic and intimate. 

Generously supported by the Knight Foundation, The Graham Foundation, The Gilbert Family Foundation, and the Danish Art Foundation.


The installation is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
