This proposal references the iconography of the missing World Trade Center towers as orienting devices. It also references each life lost on September 11, 2001 and the bombing of 1993. 3,022 viewing plates are dispersed throughout the city, at points from which one could see the towers before they were gone. Each plate is inscribed with a different profile of the lost towers and with the names and biographies of each lost life. This dispersed memorial intersects the everyday activities of the city as an organizational pattern that engages daily life. In the surrounding urban landscape, anyone can engage with the seemingly infinite memorials that populate spaces of the city. A space of meditation can occur at any time and in any place. Looking through the transparent plate, one engages that which is no longer there physically, yet continues to exist in memory. These engraved images and texts embody and celebrate these lives. Every night the plates light up one by one in a constellation-like choreography. Like lanterns lit from within, the plates illuminate the inscriptions, cityscape and biographies, transforming into luminous and delicate, yet determined, lines decorating the city in celebration and remembrance.
