"An individual, a group, a city or a country can be faceless for a moment or even forever, in my opinion this sadly happened to NYC on September 11, 2001. This work was made in 2011 from two postcards found at a store and was hanging on the wall in my first apartment in NYC to help me remember what sadly happened to NYC prior to my arrival. By showing this work I hope that the US people keep on being inspired to give the US a strong, productive & friendly face that treats people like the special human beings they are, both inside the US and in other parts of the world. This is my I heart NYC moment." Mark Brown
