New York, September 11, 2001, Four Days Later…

On September 15, 2001, the high-resolution sensors of the Ikonos satellite passed over lower Manhattan, collecting data. For an exhibition on the “rhetorics of surveillance” at the Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Karlsruhe, this installation asked about the relation between catastrophe and memory, suffering and exposure, information and experience, by printing the satellite image across 102 square meters of the gallery’s floor.
