“Memento mori”, contains two sets of alternate scenes: the artist in an interior space meditating around his desk, and the exterior negative takes, that refer to the images recorded on the retina and the symbolic significance of the river. The images of the artist going around his working table and the camera turning 360 ° in each take in order to record the totality of the visible in each of the landscape’s positions associate themselves as thought and memory do in the 'Vanitas' of Baroque painting.
