Collection 001: Memento Mori
"Memento mori," Latin for "Remember you must die," is a centuries-old trope commonly used in visual art, literature, and philosophy. The phrase reminds one that they are mortal, or in Christian theology, alludes to the looming divine judgement one awaits after death. In this collection, memento mori is not a curse or a mantra, but a reminder of the cyclical exchange of nature. Death is not an end that leads to heavenly rebirth, but to a redistribution of matter in the greater universe.
