Sheila L de Bretteville. Step(pe) , 2006.

Description:
After being shown two sites, I chose to create a new, stable and evocative concrete threshold to the old tower and worked with the help of an expert interpreter and a dozen students to complete this project in only 4 days. Due to time limitations I decided to make only the first letter and the punctuation of the texts we had written, and then happily realized that this formed an invitation to all to enter the process of signification at the threshold. The lost letters - effaced by history like the tower - are nevertheless clear to the initiated who chalked in the words at the opening ceremonies.
