Memento Mori---water globes

Some other connections...

Below is a series of water globes from 2009, all containing memento mori landscape scenes. These scenes were all documented within 15 miles from where I grew up in east Texas. Images included: Dead Man Road, Buzzards, a cemetery, a burnt forest, a clear cut forest, and a home destroyed by Hurricane Rita. The globes were "activated" by audience members spinning them and stirring their contents. The objects themselves referenced snow globes as collectibles and tokens of memorabilia.
