Memento Mori

Memento mori leverages the rich symbology of the horseshoe as an object to explore the relationship between Kelsey, her father and their shared memories. The horse shoes are modified with embedded strips of a flannel shirt owned by Kelsey’s father that was left behind in his passing. The horse shoes are affixed to public spaces where Kelsey and her father shared the few stand-out memories of their time shared together.
