Remembering 9-11

On this 13th anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center, I thought I’d post this art work by Vik Muniz, titled New York Postcard (Postcards from Nowhere), 2013, which was in his exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins Co. back in April and early May. The gallery’s press release explains:

Postcards from Nowhere is concerned with issues of loss and the dissemination of images. The rise of technology has greatly altered the material value of the postcard, as well as its traditional importance as a personal, tactile, and unique keepsake. The Postcards depict lost or drastically changed popular destinations – the Twin Towers in the New York Financial District, a once-luxurious beach in Beirut – that have been affected by technology as well as violence.

May those who lost their lives on that day rest in peace.
