Deep Wounds is a site-responsive, interactive installation commissioned by Harvard University in 2006. Built after the Civil War, Harvard's Memorial Hall honors the graduates who died fighting for the Union, but not those who fell for the Confederacy. Deep Wounds uses this history to explore unfinished healing and reconciliation. Entering the transept, we see the fallen Union men's names, dates and battles on the walls; we see the beautiful stained glass windows and cathedral ceilings; and we see that the white marble floor has become luminous with hints of inscribed text. As we walk across, the luminous skin blisters and opens to reveal descriptions of graduates who died for the Confederacy. Instead of a name for each man, we see a relationship such as father or classmate that describes a family bond. After the uncovering, the skin mends itself, covering the text again. The Confederate men are arranged on the floor facing or close to Union men from the same Harvard graduation year. The Union words are etched in red and the Confederate words are written in blue. Deep Wounds has won awards from Ars Electronica, the International Association of Art Critics (AICA), and Americans for the Arts, who pronounced it one of the yearʼs best public art works and use it as the basis for an ongoing seminar they offer on using arts to foster dialogue.
