Michael Richards 911 memorial


scrape book to write any memories one might have.
I met Michael in the Aim program at the Bronx Museum. As far as I know he was the only artist to die in the collapse of the towers. I went to the memorial yesterday and after probing a screened guide found his name. We got there during daylight and at first i was awed by the enormous absence the enormous square hole created. As it got dark and I started to search the names for my lost friend a whole new experience was created. The light from behind the water grew interference patterns that climbed up the cascades. Michael was a really great artist that was included in an early artMoving show in 1995. R.I.P.
