How about this as a temporary memorial. Hopefully the pic will show. You can also get it at:
Like people everywhere, artists Paul Myoda and Julian LaVerdiere responded to the attack by anxiously calling around to friends, lining up to give blood, trying to figure out what to do, how to help. They spent the day looking up at a once familiar skyline and seeing something disorientingly blank. And that’s how they realized that they were in position to do something that few others could do. They knew those buildings; they had spent six months actually working there, out of an unusual art studio on the 91st floor of the north tower, putting together a light sculpture that was to have been installed next year on the radio antenna on top. In planning this work of art, which had been commissioned by the group Creative Time, they had studied the towers, viewed them from all over the city, immersed themselves in the culture of the place. They went to happy hour at Windows on the World; they walked down from the 91st floor, just to see how long it would take (about 45 minutes).
So in the aftermath of the explosions, the two artists conceived a new art project called ‘‘Phantom Towers,’’ pictured on the cover of this magazine. They imagined two powerful beams rising from a reflecting pool, refilling the void left by the twin towers with incandescence. ‘‘It’s an emotional response more than anything,’’ says LaVerdiere. ‘‘Those towers are like ghost limbs, we can feel them even though they’re not there anymore. Not being doctors or licensed crane operators, we realized that the best thing we can do to help is an artistic gesture that might offer consolation or a sense of security or hope.’’
The artists intend this as an ephemeral monument, occupying the hole in the skyline until rebuilding can get under way. ‘‘It is an irony, a kind of painful irony, that we looked at the towers the same way the terrorists apparently looked at them, as a symbol of communications, strength, power,’’ says Myoda. ‘‘I fully want office buildings to be there again. Not a graveyard or a rose garden or a piece of art. There should be big buildings. It ought to be the way it was again.’’
