Through a Constellation of Paper Cards and Pixels of Light, Dispersed Memorial, Prompts a Collective Exchange and Memorial For 9/11. Join us for an exhibit opening and remembrance on September 11.
‘memory cards’ which are being exchanged nationally prompt and assemble a conversation about the memory of lost lives and changed skyline during the events of September 11, 2001. At the exhibit, this emerging collective memorial will be unveiled. The concept for a later phase of the project will also be on display. Thousands of glass plates, inscribed with a written dedication to each victim and an outline of the missing skyline, will populate New York City from anywhere in the city that the towers would have been visible. The project will be assembled online through the thousands of contributions from victims’ loved ones and residents or visitors of New York City.
Our goal is to construct two conversing collective memorials, a virtual database of stories and images and the physical dispersed installation in the city. This year, which marks the 10th anniversary of the event, we invite you locally within Asheville to 5 Walnut or virtually from anywhere nationally or globally to our virtual memorial at www.dispersed-memorial.net
