Additional Information

On September 11, 2001, I worked next to the World Trade Center at 140 Broadway. After this seismic event, the new scar in the sky made New Yorkers reflect on who we are, who we were, and the meaning of the two towers that had abruptly disappeared. In the dawn of 7 August 1972, floating amidst the clouds was high-wire artist Philippe Petit. Much like the Statue of Liberty, this mythic feat embodied the wonder of New York and the democratic legacy of the United States and France. It was the ultimate defiance for liberté; defying both the law and the laws of gravity above the city of dreams. This balancing flower bouquet commemorates the impossible weightlessness of the feline ghost of Gotham, Philippe Petit. www.artxpuzzles.com
