9/11 Forward. Together.

Agency Network: 
September 2013


Street art on traffic lights honors the victims of 9/11. On this morning of 9/11, pedestrian traffic lights around New York City have taken on a whole new meaning. The stop symbol is no longer in the shape of the familiar hand, but has been modified to resemble the fallen twin towers. Underneath it a message reads: “9/11. Forward. Together.” Six international advertising students from Miami Ad School are behind this creative guerilla project: “We wanted to create something different to show people that sharing the memory of 9/11 makes us stronger. We will never stop moving forward and we will never be alone. That’s what the connection between the two towers and the walking man symbolizes,” they explain. The signs have been spotted all over Manhattan and Brooklyn in busy areas such as the Financial District, Union Square and Bedford Ave in Williamsburg. If you want to catch a glimpse of the artwork you better hurry up because we don’t know for how long they will get to stay up.

forced. and forbidden for a reason.
perhaps i'd have to be american to get emotionally involved, cause i did not. "forward together" is nice, but a bit late after 12 years.
