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.
