ZACHOR   at Pittsburgh Holocaust Center  Intended to give Pittsburgh Jews with relatives who died in Europe a place to remember and mourn, the sculpture lists the names of individuals and families from whom those in Pittsburgh are separated. The sculpture was placed in a room with lighting that made the names difficult to read due to overhead glare and the neutral background. The lighting was also harsh and made remembrance more clinical than emotional.    Our design goal was to find a solution that could help the words stand out, and allow us to dim the light in the room, focusing attention and emotion on the names of the deceased and providing a place to commune with their memory.
