Recalling his experience in making a small prototype of the work at ground zero; “A construction worker came by — a kind of wise guy — and looked at it and said, ‘You forgot the red ones’, ” … “someone explained to him what the work was about, and he said he had been at the Trade Center, and he walked up to one of the colors and said: ‘This is the color. This is what the sky looked like that day.’ ”
