Linen Memorial

Each time it is unveiled, the linen handkerchief memorial becomes a slightly different, site-specific or site-contextual 'counter-monument.'

Linen Memorial: explanation of Exhibits

The Linen Memorial was first unveiled on September 7, 2001 in Washington state, USA. An Ecumenical project, it was opened with a private Buddhist ritual to those killed. The names were only printed at that time.
