Ashen Threshold: A Memorial to 9/11
'Ashen Threshold' is a large-scale temporary installation in the University's central plaza, which is known as Red Square. The installation will be in place from dawn to dusk on Tuesday, February 5th, 2002. The 'Ashen Threshold' is a swathe of ash 350' in length by 9'11' in width. This 'Ashen Threshold' is a metaphor for the events of 9/11. Crossing this threshold has the potential for a variety of interpretations relating to the events, causes, and aftermath of 9/11. Mike Magrath, Diane Perkins, and Anna Tamura, who are graduate students in Fine Arts and in Landscape Architecture, collaboratively developed the project in a public art interdisciplinary studio. This project will be recorded in part with the support of the Center for Advanced Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities (CARTAH) at the University of Washington.
