# Contemporary relics

September 11th attacks' eighth anniversary is approaching and the New York Times is today releasing an interesting article about those relics from the World Trade Center which are being conserved in a 80000 square foot hangar in JFK airport and in another one in the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Those symbols of collective unconscious are apparently requested by a lot of towns in US which would like to create memorials. One of these steel trident will be for sure held in the future transportation station on ground zero.
It is interesting to understand that this country has the abitlity to charge objects in an almost religiously way of collective history, emotion and pride...
