A Proclamation

A lot of the stuff I do is about memorialisation, or silence, and this is a piece that combines both. Now all the World War I centeinery commemorations are over (although the war didn’t formally end until 1919) it might be easier to look more dispassionately at how and why we remember in the way we do.

This piece is a 900 x 600mm x 15mm laser etched Perspex panel, it looks at first glance like a brass memorial plaque, but the words are not names of the dead, but quotations about possible meanings of silence.
