red lights, red objects, skulls, red (brown) noise

Meditation about the color red, the connotations and the burdens. Using it as a primary emotion. A chapel, a tribute. Skulls were used from the Roman times, to remind us of our mortality. Memento Mori (Latin: “remember (that you have) to die” is the medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. Memento mori has been an important part of ascetic disciplines as a means of perfecting the character, by cultivating detachment and other virtues, and turning the attention towards the immortality of the soul and the afterlife.
