I woke up this morning thinking of Felix Gonzales-Torres’ candy piece and was wondering about on-line directions for people who make lines in the sand. What if the sticks used to make a certain number of lines were sliced into thin biscuits, then piled up in a corner or on a table. Viewers could take one, apply a stroke of black paint, and keep it. More chips would be added? Or the number would diminish until the pile was gone representing healing?
Also I was thinking about a Widows memorial, like the war memorials in DC, only one in every country. Was widows sacrifice a part of their lives. Where is there memorial? Why can’t we have a memorial with benches, trees and a garden for people to come and contemplate, and remember?
