the epitaph project: archive
click images to enlarge
Here you can find a selection of the over 300 epitaphs collected so far. You can see in the backgrounds the different sites and situations where an epitaph was left. In Hollywood one sees the cemetery in the background, at Socrates the city across the river, in Spaces Gallery the brick wall behind the tombstone, and so on. Some visitors leave epitaphs for themselves, others offer examples they have encountered in the past, and some use the form to express their personal relationship to the present. The archive exists as 4"x5" prints and will soon be published in book form
