Dum Vivimus Vivamus

client: School assignment (2007)

technique/materials: Etching, paper

assignment: Create a contemporary vanitas.

I chose for some old technique’s like etching and tattoo’s. Allthough tattoo’s are around for a very long time, they somehow stay in contrast with the very ancient printing method of etching. The line ‘Dum Vivimus Vivamus’ is Latin for something along the lines like ‘Let’s live for as long as we are living’.
