‘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 was unveiled also as an interactive exhibit in which visitors may also contribute. The concept for a later phase of the project is also 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.

The exhibit opened on September 11 at 5 Walnut in Asheville and will be on display for 11 days, until the 22nd. You are invited to stop by and reflect and add to the memorial with your own inspiration.

dispersed memorial exhibit opens tonight

Our goal has been to construct two conversing collective memorials, a virtual database of stories and images and the physical dispersed installation in the city. In honor of 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 showcasing the project’s progress in dispersing ‘memory cards.’ at www.dispersed-memorial.net

For more information, to see the collective memorial emerging or to learn how to participate, please visit our dispersed memorial website at www.dispersed-memorial.net and our dispersed memorial blog at http://www.dispersed-memorial.net/blog/

‘memory cards’ exchanged nationally as collective remembrance

Thanks to ALL of our ambassadors for sharing the cards and initiating moments of remembrance! ‘memory cards’ are lighting a collective memorial nationwide. Do feel free to scroll through the blog to see the photos coming in from New York City, Asheville, Black Mountain, Charleston, Greenville, Washington D.C… and on the way San Francisco, Venice, Portland, Kansas, Texas, Boston and Tucson! Did I miss something?

The cards prompt and assemble a conversation about the memory of lost lives and changed skyline during the events of September 11, 2001. With each exchange of the card, a moment of remembrance is initiated and prompts a dispersed, collective conversation about the memory of loved ones lost or affected by the events of 9/11.

If your state is not represented and you want to participate, let us know. We will mail you a small and powerful package. send us a note
