Civilizations are born, rise, and eventually fall, leaving behind remains of varying degrees of permanence and mystery. Nature eventually reclaims all such spaces, with new growth covering old stones and creatures of all sizes finding shelter in and amongst the remains of those long gone. Someday, a new civilization may return and uncover a mystery. “Life and Death” is constructed from hand-dyed and commercial cottons, wool felt and roving, silk, paper, paint and beads.
