Transcript

  • 1. Proposal for Utilizing the WTC Tribute Center Oral Histories Katherine Lee | April 2, 2009
  • 2. The concept
    • 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
    • The quilt evokes the solidarity and sense of community that was brought about by the events of 9-11
    • Each photo square will be accompanied by an embroidered phrase or sentence representing the story it tells
    • 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
    • Three such “telephones” will service the quilt, each spatially confined to a third of the space occupied by the quilt; this serves to:
      • limit the number of individuals in the space
      • allow more than one user to experience the exhibit simultaneously
      • maintain the respectful and tranquil quality of the space for reflection
  • 3. The appearance
  • 4. The interface
  • 5. The location
    • This installation is designed to live on one of the walls in the basement space
    • 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
  • 6. The budget Materials Time Total Proposed Cost: $14,928
