From the gallery’s show description: ‘Memento Mori, Latin for “remember that you will die,” is a set of 12,978 images of a skull. These images are shown continuously on five monitors in the gallery space, with a selection shown in print on the wall. Each of these images is an algorithmic and geometric transfiguration of the same single black-and-white source photograph. Each image is unique, disposable, and replaceable. No person (including the artist) has seen them all. The work will be on view through February 15.’
