Xu Bing collected dust from the ruins of the World Trade Center in the aftermath of 9/11 to create his powerful Where Does the Dust Itself Collect(2011). Ten years after the tragedy, the dust was “stenciled” onto a wooden floor surface in the shape of a quotation from a Zen Buddhist poem that says: As there is nothing from the first, / Where does the dust itself collect?”See below some shots of the artist’s process and the final piece.

Drawings by Landon Graves

I love this idea of missing body parts in the drawing. This absence of the whole is in a way very similar with how our memories work: in fragments, so fragile, that even using the most powerful technologies, our minds cannot remember 100% of scenes and facts, otherwise we would get insane.

Have a lovely week, with plenty of gaps! ;D
