21 words of the ESPACE DE MEMOIRE text, written in 55 + different languages with different colors, are placed in a group of 5-7 words of the same meaning on each panel.
Each panel also bears a certain word in blue-black colors, which is the connecting link of the whole installation.
The design and the placement of the words on each panel is done in an artistic way (color - size) as well as in an mathematical one (Synthesis).
The work evokes the significance of Memory through time and space, which is transformed from material into immaterial one and turns Times Square into an island in the vast sea of a Metropolis.
In the heart of the city, the ESPACE DE MEMOIRE project proves its value, going all the way its cause, revealing aspects that are hidden, using the most important means of the human culture, the language.
The ESPACE DE MEMOIRE project itself is about transformation, the transformation that is brought by means of Art, an art that is familiar and new at the same time. It is classical in structure and contemporary in expression. It is solid as a concept and flexible in forms. It is the identity of the New York Time Square, itself.
