    Statement of Work

    When my family first moved to Lower Manhattan in the late 1980s, the Twin Towers were the reference point my father gave me to find my way home.

    I stayed in Manhattan and lived on the Upper West Side on September 11, 2001. That day, with the towers gone, I felt lost.

    A month later, my partner and I went to the Financial District to witness what had happened. I picked up a piece of plastic that looked like the twisted steel we saw. I put that fragment into a collage. I wanted to capture the emptiness. The eeriness in the city and the heaviness in the air.

    I will never forget.
