Exhibition Plus creative director Mark Magidson has created a proposal for two memorials at the site of the former World Trade Centre in New York. Sent to, among others, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the designs feature red and blue beams of light projected to the same height as the former towers. The work is a personal response to the tragedy, says Magidson. ‘The designs could be utterly irrelevant or meaningful,’ he adds. Magidson has received no feedback yet from the Government on the proposals.
