Kinetic Light Installation

“9/11:  RED WHITE AND BLUE”
a memorial to 9/11














Date:   2002


Description:

Created in 2002, “9/11:  Red, White and Blue,” a temporary installation, echoes the locator aspect of the Gateway Pylons, in that it references both the United States and its focused attention to the solemn day of September 11, 2001.  I wanted to illustrate both context and contemplation by the use of white light, which contains the entire spectrum of light and represents the diversity of life, and the specificity of America’s use of  the red, white and blue as a heartfelt aspect of our unity and identity.


The public art piece (Kinetic Light Installation, untitled, 2000) was interrupted for 24 hours with this tribute, the first time commemorating the one-year anniversary of 9/11 in 2002, and the second commemorating the 5-year anniversary of 9/11 in 2006.  I donated my services to create the repeating 15-minute display which is played on subsequent anniversaries of 9/11.
