The all-white “ghost bike memorials” are a familiar sight in urban areas around the world. Simple, effective and profound.
But in Tuscon, a team of local students and an interactive display company have translated the vocabulary of these pop-up memorials into something more permanent without losing the spontaneity and sincerity of the originals.
The memorial chapel was designed by local students. Creative Machines, a fascinating Tuscon-based interactive display design and fabrication company which also produces public art installations, led the project and provided fabrication expertise.
