Tobi Kahn, M'AHL, 2011, acrylic paint on wood, 80 inches x 42 inches x 5 inches
This floor relief is comprised of thousands of wood remnants from pieces created after September 11. When viewed from an elevated perspective, it evokes the view of the city skyline from the South Tower's Top of the World observatory. Kahn's studio has been in Long Island City since 1978, where he witnessed the attacks from his rooftop.
