Rethinking Memorial: Ten Interactive Sites for Remembering 9/11

Ten artists, one representing every year since September 11, 2001, create interactive memorial stations. The project includes a site for members of the public to create an ephemeral memorial. Participating artists include DUMBO-based Illegal Art whose project will ask participants to dip two fingers into a pot of grey indelible ink to represent the twin towers, and to reflect on the location and impact of the event over the number of days it takes for the ink to fade from their fingers, and others.

Site locations: Begin at The Pearl St. Triangle (Pearl St. btwn. Front St. & Water St.) and walk to The Archway (Water St. btwn. Adams St. & Anchorage Pl.) continue your walk on Water St. to Dock St., along which the remaining artist stations will be located. Rain sites: 30 Washington St. and The Archway.
