Panels 1 to 9 of Moment of Impact 9/11
There is one large overarching impression of the Moment of Impact 9/11 across nine panels, incorporating 300 individual pieces with minutely detailed imagery, each with their own moment of impact. The work refers the official media story, as I was a TV/media witness like millions of others. It is not a chronology nor does it illustrate the story.
I wanted to reflect my concerns with the incomplete stories that I had seen. In fact, every piece contains an incomplete story and likewise the entire piece of work is also an incomplete story. I have included things that weren’t photographed, or didn’t survive, for example the interior of descending planes in Panel 1. I didn’t have my own photographs of this so I decided to create my own images. I also wanted to make ‘small’ references to contemporary society; things become highlighted when tragedy strikes, and the potential longevity of the glass panels made me more aware of this.
The drawn images are made in flashed glass. (more...) The other types of glass selected for their abstract patterning included an iridised black which looks like aeroplane fuel/chemicals; and a diachroic ripple which was used to symbolise the towers. (more...). A specially produced batch of glass with red trails through clear made by English Antique Glass, which I renamed 'blood glass', is used throughout the panels. (more...) A significant reason for combining the abstract with the flashed glass was that the abstract glass has a different visual depth to their effects.
Moment of Impact 9/11 is overidingly a response to the horror of man’s inhumanity.
