This flip book by Pittsburgh artist Mary Mazziotti explores the one inevitable - death. A Memento Mori in pocket form.
From Mazziotti's website:
"The genre of memento mori — literally “remember you will die”
— is an old one, dating back at least to the Romans, and reached its apotheosis with the sentimental melancholy of the Victorians. It’s a notion that’s still worth pondering. Who knows the days remaining to us? Terrorists are after our blood. A texting driver veers into our lane. Noxious chemicals invade the food chain. Who doesn’t know someone with cancer?
Life is fragile, Death is inevitable — and distressingly unpredictable."
Mary Mazzioti's Memento Mori, Baby! was exhibition in the Mattress Factory's 2010 Gestures #14 exhibition.
