When you make a film, or write a book, it's completed long before the public or critics get to see it. The process of 'creating' is clearly separated from the people formerly known as the audience or the reader. But all that has changed, as once physically published objects morph into interactive conversations with the audience.
On the eve of the opening of the National September 11 Memorial, and on the 10th anniversary of that world-changing day, here's a look at how names are inscribed next to each other on the granite wall surrounding the Memorial Garden’s fountains.
As the anniversary of 9/11 nears, the world will be reminded of the tragedy that occurred on that crisp, clear September day. But over the last 10 years, New Yorkers have confronted the loss every day as they look at the skyline and register the conspicuous absence of the towers, which rose above the surrounding buildings like oversize Lego blocks. A new Kickstarter project will re-create that image with a free app for iPhone users.
