Family Memorial

MEMORIES ARE embedded within us. Sights, smells, textures and sounds remind us of the precious moments experienced with our lost loved ones. As one walks through a forest of brick piers, every pier represents a moment experienced with a significant person that has impacted one’s life. At times, a pier pierces through the bridge and redirects one’s path, forcing them to reflect. At other moments, one is able to reach out and feel the brick, removing the bricks, one by one, to reveal a keeping place for a special object or memory. Upon reaching the final look-out point, after crossing the island beneath the canopy of trees, one sees a final solitary pier in the distance, reminding us of the lost loved ones that are just beyond reach.
