This 3D piece is made of concrete and wood.
It measures 36" high, and 36" wide. The concrete is
poured into a block that is supported on wooden legs. I have
submitted a collage of photos of the object.
It is a scale model of the city block that the Twin Towers occupied.
Vesey, Liberty, Church and West are the intersecting roads. This
piece was a way for me to visualize the sense of loss that I feel by
emphasizing what is no longer there. Concrete, the same material that
was used to make the Twin Towers, seems barren, and the two holes in
the piece echo with loss. It was important to make the object
something to look down through. It is just high enough so that
it is not apparent to the viewer that the cut-outs are, in fact,
hollow, but once the viewer gets up close she can see the emptiness
that is the piece.
