Summary: Scott Blake has created a flipbook consisting of images of United Airlines Flight 175 crashing into the south tower of the World Trade Center. Accompanying the images are essays written by a wide range of participants, each expressing their personal experience of the September 11th attacks. In addition, the authors of the essays were asked to reflect on, and respond to, the flipbook itself. Not surprisingly, the majority of the essayists experienced the events through news network footage.
Blake is distributing his 9/11 Flipbooks to encourage a constructive dialog regarding the media’s participation in sensationalizing the tragedy. “My primary goal with the 9/11 Flipbook is to remind everyone how the mainstream media broadcast the violent attacks over and over,” Blake said. “The way I see it, the news did exactly what the terrorists wanted them to do. I’m concerned that if a similar tragedy happened again today, every TV and newspaper would do it all over again.”
A percentage of the proceeds of every 9/11 Flipbook sold are donated to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund, the Fire Department of New York and the International Red Cross.
