Where God was on 9/11: A tribute to the Survivors
6' x 5' Multi-Media Granite, marble, glass, pottery and mirrors
This piece was made with two mirrors representing the towers. That way, no matter who looks at the piece, their reflection, their culture, sex, shape, religion, ideology, etc. is represented in the towers.
There is a yellow and red yin yang in the center of the explosion, the cross from a photo I saw of a church near there and the universal sign of peace in the top right panel. Wall street is crumbling and Ms. Liberty has lost her crown in the bay.
I received an email days after that affected the piece greatly. It spoke of the thousands of people who were detained or delayed in getting to work that day as well as the many miracle stories of people turning the right way at the right time enabling them safe escapes. The piece is dedicated to the survivors.
$9,999 *artist note: I would love to see this piece purchased for a permanent installation in NYC as I lived on Governor's Island (700 yards south of Manhattan) while the towers were being built.
9/11/08, seven years later, we are still making war, the conventions are over and the election looms in the future. McCain/Palin vs Obama/Biden. I've just left a police state in Minnesota which has helped me recall vividly the feelings that permeated our country after this attack in the first few weeks and months. I wonder what it must feel like in Baghdad, with the horrid conditions they are being forced to live with for almost six years now. They must be so traumatized. We were, after only one attack on our soil.
go in peace,
