Remember that you will die

About to head out into the late afternoon autumn light - although, 'light' seems such a direct word for something that seems to seep?  

Off to place a small installation as part of the Sawtooth ARI members show that opens tomorrow night, May 3.  Am thinking of it as a kind of memento mori, an acknowledgment that over these past few weeks, death has stepped up close and reminded me that, of course, it is ever-present.  

Fittingly, I was involved in filming in a hospital morgue last week as part of a collaboration between myself and artist, Josh Foley.  We're showing that work as part of the Launceston General Hospital's Sesquicentenary Exhibition that opens May 6th.  

Good busy times.  When in doubt, create.
