Proposal for Utilizing the WTC Tribute Center Oral Histories Katherine Lee | April 2, 2009
The concept <ul><li>The installation piece is an expansive quilt with some squares as screen-printed, embroidered, or silk-screened photos of either the story-tellers or some symbolic relic that represents the story </li></ul><ul><li>The quilt evokes the solidarity and sense of community that was brought about by the events of 9-11 </li></ul><ul><li>Each photo square will be accompanied by an embroidered phrase or sentence representing the story it tells </li></ul><ul><li>Pressing on a square will activate audio via pressure sensor, sending the audio to a “telephone” style cup on a wire, recalling the children’s messaging system of dixie-cup + string telephone </li></ul><ul><li>Three such “telephones” will service the quilt, each spatially confined to a third of the space occupied by the quilt; this serves to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>limit the number of individuals in the space </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>allow more than one user to experience the exhibit simultaneously </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>maintain the respectful and tranquil quality of the space for reflection </li></ul></ul>
The location <ul><li>This installation is designed to live on one of the walls in the basement space </li></ul><ul><li>It would be ideal for the far wall to the right when one crosses the threshold into the main room in the basement, where they usually keep their changing exhibits </li></ul>
