September 8 – October 9 2011

Originally created in 2004 in Cardiff, Wales, this project utilizes the dust that renowned Chinese artist Xu Bing collected from the streets of Lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11. Recreating a field of dust across a floor surface, punctuated by the outline of a Zen Buddhist poem, the work explores the relationship between the material and the spiritual world, and the complicated circumstances created by different world perspectives.

This installation is part of InSite: Art + Commemoration, presented by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC).
