On September 12, 2001 a group of people in front of Ground Zero, New York are photographed holding up a banner on which was painted: WE NEED HEROES NOW. This performance shows what has become of Prometheus’ fire: it was robbed of its enchantment and promise. A desert landscape extends itself in front of us, and the light starts to dim.
