9.25.13 … the Fallen …

Arromanches beach, Normandy, Peace Day, public art, the Fallen: Last Saturday was Peace Day (International Day of Peace (United Nations) 2013). I was overwhelmed by “the Fallen,” a very temporary public art installation.

A pair of British artists have created this stunning installation of 9,000 silhouettes on a D-Day Landings beach to mark international Peace Day.

The project, named, ‘The Fallen’ is a tribute to the civilians, German forces and Allies who lost their lives during the Operation Neptune landing on June 6, 1944.

The design was the brainchild of Jamie Wardley, 33, and Andy Moss, 50.

Together with a team of volunteers the pair travelled to Arromanches beach, Normandy, to create the silhouettes, which were individually drawn into the sand.
