My second picture is up...in a bar where the artists in this town usually hang out. A chance to say something, so it has the title "Propaganda". This title will be change a few times in the next couple of weeks. There are reasons for this, for example, to keep 'em guessing in a sense to illustrate what the terrorists would have us do, another is to sufficiently provoke the public to give some thought to the meaning of all of what is happening...etc.
IÂ´ve put the following text on the wall for those with a modicum of actual interest and patience to read:
February 26, 1993. A group of terrorists blew up a truck full of explosives in the underground garage of the World Trade Centre in New York. Six people died and more than 300 were injured. Living in New Zealand at the time, I wondered what this event meant for the world. The towers symbolised something else back then: trade and diplomacy â€“ a world working together for a future. The attack seemed to be an attack on peace itself. I went there to have a look...to try to understand.
I had no idea what it would come to mean. I donÂ´t think anyone has any idea what it means even now, and certainly no idea of what is yet to come.
IÂ´ll post a pic of the scene later...heading down there in a thunderstorm now cos IÂ´m a bit thirsty!
