Memento Mori

Memento Mori – 2278 Birthday Candles, 2010

The set is comprised of 2278 birthday candles held in a wooden block; this number represents the number of candles required for 67 birthdays, the world average human life expectancy. Each year, one row is removed to place on the cake; this elevates the act of preparing for a birthday celebration to a meditative ritual.
