Sandow Birk and Elyse Pignolet's collaborative project, The 99 Names of God is a series of illustrations depicting the five airports and departure gates involved in the attacks of September 11, 2001. The 99 Most Perfect Names of God are the names of God in the Qur'an and in the Hadith. The 99 names vary, and they often appear in elaborate calligraphy and with extensive decorations. The motifs adorning the texts and the drawings are derived from ornamentation found in historical, hand-illuminated Qur'ans. Sandow Birk investigates the Qur'an as the divine message from God to mankind in his series American Qur'an. Birk follows the centuries old tradition of using color inks to render the calligraphy by hand. Birk seeks to deconstruct negative stereotypes against Islam, and present the Qur'an in accessible format to American society, in hopes of fostering an understanding about its relationship to Judeo-Christian beliefs.
