September 11th Flipbook
by Scott Blake
.Trouble with Quicktime Movie? Try viewing GIF Animation

Scott Blake's 9/11 Flipbook, which allows viewers to watch a continuous reenactment of the attack on the Twin Towers, is undoubtedly frivolous and provocative. But the artist's intention reaches beyond mere provocation by hurting peoples' sensitivities or debasing their memories. Rather, Blake is interested in conducting research on the disparity of opinions and attitudes towards terrorist acts - a fact that is never discussed in the mainstream media. By recording the polyphony of voices in a book, the artist aims to unravel the dominant narrative surrounding this dramatic event.

Every book is handmade by the artist using archival materials and registered in online database below. The large September 11th Flipbook with essays measures 7.25 x 5.25 in (18.5 x 13.5 cm), 83 color pages, and is bound with three screw posts. Signed, numbered, and dated by the artist.

By purchasing this special September 11th commemorative flipbook, a portion of the proceeds will help support Twin Towers Orphan Fund, Fire Department of New York, and International Red Cross.
