Description A tree recovering from an act of violence that we all felt
Caption "An existing tree was moved and replanted at an angle, as if it had been disturbed by the physical blast of the explosion or by the mental shock, the small earthquake that altered this location. It is a living monument that will change from season to season and regenerate from year to year. Its presence suggests the integration of the traumatic memory into the university's everyday life."
