"1612 Dots" a project by Jonathan Horowitz

With the instruction to paint a perfect, solid black dot, using only paint and brushes, 1612 people passing through the Oculus at the World Trade Center painted the 1612 dots which make up this installation. Of all 7.49 billion people in the world everyone paints with a different hand and everyone speaks with a different voice, yet “everyone is created equal” “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our ability to recongnize, accept, and celebrate those differences” (quote by Audre Lorde)
