Joseph Cornell: glow in the dark

A few weeks ago I took a close friend to the Joseph Cornell exhibition at the Royal Academy to celebrate my birthday. She knew of his work, and that he was my favourite artist. We took a few hours to get through everything - I couldn't help pointing out extra facts about my favourite works, and getting excited about hearing Cornell's own voice on the audio commentary. As we were leaving my friend said, 'You know, I can see why you like him. So many things in there reminded me of you.'

Tribute in Light

Today as the sky over New York City is illuminated by the Tribute in Light on the 9/11 Memorial site, we honor and remember our heroes.

The survivors, the fallen, those who served and all the friends and families affected in the wake of this tragedy - not just that day but through the years and hopefully all the learnings. 

Many around the world watched and were touched too on that memorable day 14 years ago.
