This Friday, November 22nd 2013, marks 50 years since the devastating 1963 assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Tool and The Martin Agency’s documentary-style installation, “An Idea Lives On,” presented at the JFK Presidential Library in Boston, MA, pays homage to the late President’s memory, illuminating his words: “While a man may die, and nations may rise and fall, an idea lives on.”
These heartfelt and honest abbreviated segments from the project represent instances of JFK’s legacy as it continues to positively impact government, groups, and the lives of individuals today.
“When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.” – President John F. Kennedy
