Soaking fabric in the Hudson River one month after 9/11.


Hudson River Scrolls, 9/11. 2002.

Washing window at ground zero with same fabric.

“The notion of absorption recurs in numerous works including the Venetian Scrolls and Hudson River Scrolls. I have been very moved by the piece you did shortly after the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers, when you soaked cloth in the Hudson River and then proceeded to use this cloth to clean a store window near ground zero. This was a powerful, focused, and simple action, laden with levels of meaning.”

David Williams, British writer
