Night Song Light Sculpture
Fort Worth, TX United States | 2011
The crosses and base of the chalice were made from steel recovered from the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The small pieces of steel, used to make the crosses and the base of the chalice, were galvanized to ensure they will last as a memorial of the 9/11 tragedy for years to come.
The artist felt galvanizing the steel would represent how people were galvanized into action following the terrorist attack. The pieces were fabricated as memorials of the attack and it is possible the chalice could be placed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC. Although only a small amount of steel was galvanized in this project, it was handled with a high degree of reverence because of the symbolic meaning of the steel as a memorial of the terrorist attacks.
