TWIN TOWERS 2002 (Video Still)

video 90 sec

As my twin sons were 3 weeks old, I was torn out of the cosy baby-bliss by the events of September 11th 2001. Through the near concurrence of these two life-changing events, they remain for me strongly associated. It seemed poignant then when, like all small children, they displayed a seemingly instinctive drive to destroy ostentatious constructions whether they be out of sand or building blocks or cards.

The purity and innocence of the two babies at work here stands in glaring contrast to the main players in 11.09.01 (on both sides). But can it be that there are some similarities in motivation, some similar level of world-view?
