• Mementos is a scultpural artist's book about the fear of inevitable bodily degeneration and decay. It consists of five "stories" contained in petri dishes, each holding a piece of the body associated with a concept of aging.  Decay is represented by teeth, senescence by skin, degeneration by the optic nerve, atrophy by bones, and suffocation by lungs. A piece of writing accompanies each part, describing my own somewhat irrational fear of the breakdown of my own body.
