9/11 Memorial

2003

 

Television was the medium through which millions of people all over the world watched the terrorist attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center unfold live, and through endless replays.

 

An eternally lit television monitor dedicated to each victim is the medium to convey and commemorate each moment when one of the 3022 persons ceased forever to connect and communicate with the rest of the world.

 

The monitors create two tilted bright fields of glowing screens, which redefine the footprints of the two towers where their lives were lost.

 

But the signal has been disrupted. The monitors display only a field of flickering pixels. The lost signal is a reminder of the unfulfilled potential of each life disrupted by the catastrophic event. The name and date of birth of each victim is registered on their individual screen by disabled pixels that form black letters. Each monitor is tilted to create a small depression where offerings might be placed and leaves and snow can collect and be illuminated.
