In the days immediately following the attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001, Garvey wrote and performed a piano piece at the Whitneyville Congregational Church in Hamden. In past years, he performed the piano composition on the steps of the Arnold Bernhard Library during Quinnipiac’s annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony.
After visiting the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City a few years ago, Garvey decided to develop the interactive project. It features the piano score, an iconic photograph of the ruins of the World Trade Center Towers and scrolling panels displaying the names of the victims of 9/11 following the same order as the memorial.
“This project is a labor of love done independently,” Garvey said.
The interactive project also allows viewers to stop and change the direction of the scrolling panels and click on a link to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum website for more information about the victims.
Garvey joined Quinnipiac in 1999. As a digital artist, he has exhibited interactive computer-based installations in the United States, Canada, Europe and elsewhere at venues such as Pratt Manhattan Gallery in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria, and Tech Fest in Mumbai.
Garvey earned a master of science in visual studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was a fellow at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT from 1983-85. He also has a master's and a bachelor's of fine arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
