ATLANTIC CITY HOLOCAUST MUSEUM
The calligraphics of the Hebrew spelling of Shoah [the Holocaust], was the departure point for weetu's proposal for a new Holocaust Memorial in Atlantic City. Exploring the change from solid to diffuse, weetu sought to visualize this change, and the potential embedded meaning. Each Hebrew letter in Shoah is formed from a solid block of black granite, which is then carved away; disintegrating and merging with a glass casing, which in turn forms the final Hebrew symbol. As seen from the boardwalk, the plinths appear solid and complete. Once the memorial is entered, as you progress through it, they appear to diffuse and scatter, reaching towards the ocean beyond.
