Dear lovely fans, followers and subscribers, I’m looking for your input on a new project I’m developing.
At the moment, I’m researching Memento Mori for a project for uni. Literally translated as Remember You Will Die, Memento Mori are objects, artwork or jewellery designed to remind the owner of the fleeting, transient nature of life. Particularly popular in the Victorian era, Memento Mori jewellery could also contain the hair, or a favourite object belonging to a loved one who had passed away.
In the name of research, I’m thinking about what objects and symbols in the modern world would serve as a reminder that life is fleeting? And this is where I need your help, dear readers!
What object, image, association or even word, reminds you that life is fleeting?
I’m really excited and interested in hearing your feedback!
