Whether in plain air public cemeteries, private closets or window shrines, creating and assembling remembrances is a profound and nearly universal act of veneration. Symbols of long-lasting traditions, these places and objects epitomize a diversity of ongoing and living spiritual and cultural practices.

This project is a meditative exploration of how people remember the dead, what signs and symbols mark a life lived, and the parallels and differences of memory throughout various countries, cultures and religions.

Often opaque and mysterious, using multiple objects or signs, sometimes within conflicting or hybrid of belief systems, these remembrances are always moving, often delicate and even humorous. Honoring the occupations, passions and individual stories of loved ones, they also subtly reflect socio-cultural contexts, historical events and even broader visual patterns.
