Tapestry Made of Paper Debris from the Twin Towers

Artist Elena del Rivero’s massive installation artwork “[Swi:t] Home: A CHANT” is a rich, touching work drawing on the creator’s experience living in downtown New York City, across the street from the World Trade Center in 2001.

Over several years, the artist catalogued and documented some 3,000 articles of paper were among the debris from the offices of the Twin Towers that inundated her apartment.

Rivero has sewn these into a large hanging fabric, which is on view in the Lobby Gallery at the New Museum in New York City
