New York, 9/11/13. On this morning of 9/11, pedestrian traffic lights around New York City have taken on a whole new meaning. The stop symbol is no longer in the shape of the familiar hand, but has been modified to resemble the fallen twin towers. Underneath it a message reads: “9/11. Forward. Together.”
Six international advertising students from Miami Ad School are behind this creative guerilla project:
“We wanted to create something different to show people that sharing the memory of 9/11 makes us stronger. We will never stop moving forward and we will never be alone. That’s what the connection between the two towers and the walking man symbolizes,” they explain.
9/11. Forward. Together.
The signs have been spotted all over Manhattan and Brooklyn in busy areas such as the Financial District, Union Square and Bedford Ave in Williamsburg. If you want to catch a glimpse of the artwork you better hurry up because it’s not sure for how long they will get to stay up.
