On September 11, 2001, I watched the Twin Towers fall while standing at the
corner of West and Green streets in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, staring southwest,
transfixed, as a massive plume of smoke enveloped first the South Tower, then
the North. The cloud consumed the Towers with a speed both instantaneous and
agonizingly slow, with a dreamlike motion that reminded me then of time-lapse
films of plants growing, as if some giant grey Venus fly-trap had swallowed the
buildings.

Since 2002 American artists have been struggling with how to represent the
central visual reality of 9/11: falling. With constant visual reminders of the
crumbling of the two towers, the American mediascape was dominated for
months by what came to seem like an endless loop of rerun imagery. The already
limited cultural and political vocabulary of American news programs was
narrowed even further by the attacks; the moment of each tower collapsing
became, in the fall of 2001, the ...

Opposites collide and fall into a paranoid schizoid split manifested as the “Us-
Them” mentality. We see in a TV interview Bin Laden gave that he was
interpreting dreams of towers falling and of airplanes crashing as symbols of
hope and power. At the same time people in this country were reported to be
dreaming of towers collapsing and airplanes crashing, but the affect was fear,
terror, “horrible vulnerability.”6 Religion and the depths of the psyche act as
resources for us in our ...

Even so, live coverage was interspersed with footage of the second plane
smashing into WTC Tower 2, shown over and over. John L. Clark watched with
his coworkers as the towers fell, “knowing that there were still hundreds of people
in the towers either unaware of the happenings or unable to leave.” For those
who first heard on the radio, the news was confusing. Some wondered if it was
real, or another War of the Worlds, the Orson Welles radio play (adapted from
H. G. Wells's ...

Homemade towers up to 30 ft. high, such as the wooden structure shown here,
can be built by experienced do-ityourselfers. they can be quite attractive (this one
includes a small picnic platform in the base) but are more apt to be blown down
in high winds. if you plan on building one, consult a structural engineer and site
the tower in an area where danger to life and property due to the tower falling will
be negligible. Pull Up where added tower expense is not appreciably offset by ...

shaken”? the september Mysteries The events of September 11, 2001, took place
in the last climactic week of the Shemitah. In that week it all came together, the
