Remembering 9/11

The twin beacons of light eminating from lower Manhattan and illuminating the New York night sky this week are a somber reminder of those who lost their lives in the attacks on the World Trade Center. Currently in its eighth year, the memorial was spearheaded by  Creative Time in partnership with the Municipal Arts Society and artists Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda.

To commemorate the installation Creative Time has released two editions with LaVerdiere and Myoda. Towers of Light Triptych consists of three digital c-prints measuring 13×15.5 inches each, available in a signed and dated edition of 100 for $1500. Also available is Towers of Light Over the Empire, a single image from the series priced at $500. All proceeds will help support Creative Time’s future public art projects. Order here

Also worthy of mention is NY based artist Eric Parnes‘ sculpture, Two (pictured above). Comprised of twin plexiglass towers filled with World Trade Center debris collected from Ground Zero on the day of the 9/11 attacks, the piece serves as a startling commentary on the conflicted nature concerning the preservation and exhibition of artifacts associated wartime atrocities.
