In a few hours it will be the one year anniversary since we announced Dispersed Memorial phase II to the world and when we began expanding our team and growing collectively with ambassadors dispersing cards and exchanging memories nationally. After the virtual and physical exhibit/memorial on 9/11/11 and a little rest, we are resuming activity on our blog as the ‘memory cards’ continue to come in.  We start this new cycle with photos from Texas. Thanks Dustin White!

a reminder to our ambassadors – upload your photos today

Thanks again for joining us in this collective memorial. We want to remind you that we want to get as many photos up before 9/11.  They will exist on our virtual memorial but we are also printing them for a physical exhibit in Asheville in North Carolina on Sunday. Please upload what you can today if you want your photo to be part of the exhibit opening and this date of remembrance on 9/11’s 10th year anniversary. The photos can continue to be uploaded after that as the memorial will continue to grow.

The uploading process is easy. Also, it is important if you join our dispersed memorial group on Panoramio as it will help us grow and get an official URL for the group. Here is the breakdown.

At the dispersed memorial site:

1) CLICK to join panoramio,  2) UPLOAD photos to your account, 3) MAP photos by geotagging them at the location where they were taken, 4) TITLE with the name of the person you shared the card with or with your name if there was no exchange, 5) CAPTION with a brief note about remembrance, 6) JOIN the dispersed memorial group * important, this will help us grow and get an official URL for the group, 7) CLICK to add photos to the dispersed memorial group

Thanks so much for contributing. The memorial exists because of each of YOU. – Martha

‘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
