Memory Wound - Utøya memorial by Jonas Dahlberg Studio

Memorializing something as shocking as the massacre on the island of Utøya is a near impossible task especially for the victims of the event. When the victim is, in effect, ultimately an entire country, the possibility of arriving at a solution unclouded by rage, the need for revenge or the outpouring of raw sentiment is remote. This proposal is striking in its profundity, in its serene disconnection from ugly ideologies, from attempts to lay blame with the "other". By depicting the consequences of the act so eloquently while allowing no foothold for partisan ownership of the memory, the design honestly witnesses the unbearable loss on that day.
