2002: Two columns of light are pointed skyward from ground zero in New York City as a memorial to the victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It initially ran as a temporary installation until April 14, 2002, and was launched again in 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the attack. It has been repeated every year since on Sept. 11.
