Dimensions: 8 feet by 40 feet on curved entrance corridor wall. Medium is photomontage on aluminum panels.
Artwork is a 'non-linear' photomontage of the construction of the Twin Towers using archived photos from the 1960's. Abstracted images of construction photos were merged with images of historical transportation from centuries past. These images were interwoven within areas of pure, vibrant color to give the impression of constant movement.
Collaboration with the Port Authority Architecture Department included designing the work to fit on a curved wall, comply with the use of permanent materials, and to meet installation safety requirements.
This installation has been given landmark status and will be relocated to the WTC at Ground Zero in 2018.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
