WW: Effective memorial

(This sculpture memorialises the apartment house that used to stand on the site of a giant new office complex in Olympia, Washington. Building a "desk" out of bricks from the previous structure neatly sums up the situation, but the artist had the further genius to include a "laptop" with a photograph and short synopsis of the site's history on-screen. Genius, I say, because, like a ringing phone in my day, it's physically impossible to pass such a "device" without attending to it. Rare intersection of civil education, humour, and effectiveness.)
