These are modern vanities that remind us of the famous Latin phrase "Memento Mori", "remember that you will die". & Nbsp; beyond the beauty of this waste appears a raw reality: we are all going to end like cans of soda, to rebuild! By effective effect, I would like the spectator to find art on every street corner by remembering my work and remembers the brevity of life by meditating on the meaning of its existence ...
