"The Split" 2 Favorite

“The Split”, 26"H x 20"W x 18"D (aluminum, physics books, iPod running a countdown timer program, light, shadow) uses the shadow of a “High School Physics” book to represent World Trade Center, Building #7 that fell into its own footprint at free fall speed (6.5 seconds) on the afternoon of September 11, 2001. We were told that fire caused it to fall, but that is impossible and defies the basic Laws of Physics. The title "The Split" has a number of meanings here, but chiefly refers to a split in the seam of reality that occurred on 9/11. It also refers to the split in society...those who are aware and those who are not (some willfully so).


Referenced in Dr. David Ray Griffin’s book, “Cognitive Infiltration”, as follows:

Another essay, comparing Newton’s laws with George Orwell’s “secret doctrine that 2 + 2 = 4,” [430] says:

Professor Steven Jones found himself forced out of [a] tenured position for merely reminding the world that physical laws, about which there is no dissent whatsoever, contradict the official theory of the World Trade Center Towers’ collapse.[431]

This essay’s author then pointed out that, if NIST’s account of why these buildings collapsed is accepted, “the specifications of design for all skyscrapers ought, in the public interest, to be subjected to major review.” NIST’s account also requires, he added, a revision of the physical laws regarding the behavior of steel that have long been presupposed in the engineering sciences.[432] His point, of course, was that no scientists or engineers believe that these laws need to be revised, so that the contradiction between NIST’s account of the destruction of the World Trade Center, on the one hand, and some elementary principles of physics, on the other – a contradiction that has been expressed by artist Mark Dotzler in a piece of artwork titled The Split [433] - means that all architects and engineers aware of this contradiction should be joining Jones in publicly rejecting NIST’s report.

The repression and revised imposition of September 11th and the attendant “war on terror” on the public mind have important implications not only for the integrity of public discourse, but also for the collective sanity of western culture and civilization. As crafted by dominant news media 9/11 has become the cracked lens through which we view and conceive of our own history, identity, and purpose. Each act of subverting or evading factual accounts of actually existing events manifests itself as a small fissure in the broader edifice of truth and rationality. So does it also contribute to furthering the designs of broader forces seeking to build a once seemingly pretend brave new world.

“They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality...and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening.”
