It is the first time the full moon is observed after the massacre of
Virginia Tech. For many, the moon will never look the same again.
This is a quest to extract the feelings for the souls that will be
missed in the lives of many, and for the souls among us that were
touched in different ways.
A trans-mix of materialistic and spiritual elements is represented by
colorless buildings, lilies to convey an overwhelming feeling of
surprise, shock, grieve and hope. Thirty-two different types of lilies
in white and orange emerge from the gray-shaded mix of figures,
symbolizing the spirits of the 32 victims.
With the absence of the victims from sight, they become like images,
or like seasonal plants, that are soon gone.
Lilies were chosen to represent the diversity of the victims, as
lilies grow all over the world in different types.
The work on this memorial started with the first full moon after the
massacre, and was concluded early June 2007.
