Rebuilding is an eclectic art project that brings together 35mm time-lapse film and an ever evolving series of drawings and paintings captured directly from life on site. Marcus Robinson’s work explores and celebrates the rebuilding of the World Trade Center from a personal artistic perspective. A television version was screened on Channel 4 in the UK in 2013 and a  full length feature film will be released when the site is completed.  A major art exhibition bringing together the entire collection of paintings and multi screen film installation will be opening at the same time as a celebration of the rebuilding and reflection of the human spirit.

Marcus Robinson has been working on the project for the last 10 years and it is very much a labour of love and artistic dedication.
