The Rib Cage
From the vault the body is lowered into the next stage of decomposition. The main material used throughout this visual to construct this interior is bone. Bone is a durable material that has been used throughout history for decorative practices along with artefacts such as hourglasses, scythes, black drapery, and death masks. These are all elements of the memento mori and can be found decorating the interior of this space and others. The bones that are found within this visual belong to those who have already travelled through the space and undergone the decomposition process. My design process for this space included a variety of sketches and small collages that were developed in more detail to construct the final visualisation of this space.
