Concept Description:
Monuments of today and of days past. Faraway monuments and familiar ones. Monuments of ugliness and monuments of beauty. Monuments of ours and those of our enemies. Monuments of faith and others of unfaithfulness. Monuments of loyalty and others of treason. Monuments of the personal and the collective memory. Monuments of tomorrow that yet remain unseen.
