Moving Perimeter: A Wreath for Ground Zero


"Having lived and worked in downtown Manhattan for the past thirty years the events of September 11 became an intimate part of my life. Walking into the area, passing through the checkpoints of a war zone it was impossible not to see the new realities of the city, the large inaccessible areas, the shifting borders around the areas impacted by the attack. As more of the city gradually became accessible, thousands of people came to trace the perimeter of Ground Zero, turning it into a moving pilgrimage. Working from these observations and with a desire to contribute in some tangible way, I started to consider this edge as a site in a collaborative project with Victoria Marshall and Elliott Maltby."
