“Find out more about the concept for the AIDS Memorial Sculpture, which was conceived by an art student from Switzerland currently studying at the San Francisco Art Institute. She had lost one of her best friends to AIDS. It is her reaction to the loss and to the way society reacts to AIDS and death. After services and funerals people do not seem to share their grief. It is necessary to create spaces where the sharing of wonderful memories as well as of grief become possible. It is also a reaction to being exposed so frequently to different public sculptures, most of them being war memorials or tributes to politicians. There furthermore is a strong hope that the both individuals and communities may have a more immediate role in the creation public art and the making of public spaces. Everyone can affect the world he lives in in a symbolically powerful and an aesthetically pleasing way.”
