|The 2011 installation of Tribute in Light.|
Six months after the attack in 2001, two artists Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda installed the “Phantom Towers,” what we know now as the Tribute in Light, in partnership with several architects and Paul Marantz, the original lighting designer. LaVerdiere told New York Times Magazine, “It is an emotional response more than anything…the towers are like ghost limbs, we can feel them even though they’re not there anymore.” Untapped Cities previously had the opportunity to get up close to the mechanics of Tribute in Light.
Well, I won't be repeating this year about what happened on that day. I did a post in the past about this. But still, this is something really personal that I could never forget. May it be the same year experiencing the same incident on a family I lost in January 2001.
Time flies, but the world will always remember what happen on September 11th. May all the lives lost be remembered. Twelve years and still counting. It's great to see the Twin Towers illuminated tribute once again. America and the free world are still healing.
