About the Artwork
Medium: granite, aluminum, steel, neon light
This site-specific installation was dedicated to the memories of Professors Matthew Douglass, Michael Hogben, Aaron Saber and Phoivos Ziogas who were killed in the Fabrikant Shooting in the building on August 24, 1992. The memorial was the subject of a competition two years later. Working in tandem with the bereaved families, it was agreed to engrave the victims’ names together with quotations that their loved ones felt captured their lives. The use of stone, metal, light and greenery in various juxtapositions sharply penetrates the public space yet invites interaction and assembly. Students who congregate and study in this area become part of a living memorial.
