Hart Island (NY)

BY BRAM BROERSE
@ VOL 16 ON FEB 23, 2016

Sinds 1869 worden ongeclaimde en ongeïdentificeerde New Yorkers begraven op Hart Island. Bram Broerse van het Utrechtse ontwerpbureau Studio AIRPORT heeft de website ontworpen van het Hart Island Project, waarop bezoekers verhalen kunnen achterlaten over mensen die begraven liggen op Hart Island.

Studio AIRPORT bedacht een methode om te meten hoe lang begraven mensen uit de geschiedenis verdwenen zijn, getiteld ‘The Clocks of Anonymity’. Een klok begint te lopen vanaf het moment dat iemand op het eiland begraven is. Zodra een bezoeker een verhaal, foto, of video plaatst stopt de klok met tikken.
