Integrating recovered steel fragments from the World Trade Center attach on September 11, 2001 into a reflective place, #G-0048 represents our diverse yet interconnected world. The stone element is intentionally quiet without extravagant manipulation. The steel relic and artifact in its dignified and raw state is the focus of both a catastrophe and a reminder of hope for non-violence.
