The enormity of numbers is the context of our monument. The amount of Holocaust victims resonates in the form of a void. Constructed of thousands of straight tubes, the memorial is a simple rectangular block. Viewed from the beach, it is a monolithic mass seemingly whole and unbroken. From the boardwalk, this mass of tubes reveals a troubling erosion that destabilizes any sense of unity and comprehension. Viewed from the north, the memorial exposes the cavity of destruction. Visitors can enter the void, filling the absence left by genocide and learning from atrocity. This spatial expression of loss is generated from data: two-thirds of the tubes are cut short, responding to the amount of victims who lost their lives during the Holocaust. The ends of these shortened tubes are imbedded with LED’s, filling the emptiness with radiance and memorializing lost lives and offering hope to future generations.
