Proposal Synopsis: A circle connects, a circle embraces.
Our Iraqimemorial is a circle. Its outline is 27,5 kilometers or 27.500.000 millimeters. As many millimeters as there are Iraqi citizens.
The circle is drawn around the centre of Baghdad. A thin copper strip that is visible where ever the soil is public space. In the pavement of squares, streets and sidewalks, in the cities parks and greens, in the public areas of municipal and commercial buildings.
Anyone entering or leaving the city central areas will allways have to cross the circle and might for a short moment reflect on those compatriots who did not survive the Iraqi tragedies, but also on his or her 27.500.000 fellow citizens, fellow mourners.
