Wow, this bothers me. I mean, there’s the not-quite-real appearance of the towers, there’s the fact that they still appear to be beneath trees, there’s the exploitation of 9/11 for profit, sure there’s all that. But also, for me anyway, there’s this sense that no, the towers aren’t there anymore and that’s kind of the whole point.

Look, artists are free to make whatever they want, of course of course. But I find it unexpectedly and powerfully revolting.
