These delicate flowers are made from the bones and fur of frozen mice sold at pet stores. After constructing the flowers and photographing them, the artist destroys the pieces and buries the remains, “re-enacting the process of life and death that leaves behind only memories…”

Single Mom

I really don’t understand how a man can just walk away from a child. I could understand if he was tired of me, but how do you not think twice about your own flesh and blood? How heartless can you possibly be? I tried to tell myself I am ok, but it starts to get to you, the closer the day comes. I know how much I adore my father, its so sad my baby won’t know how that feels. People tell me women do it everyday, but that doesn’t make me feel better. I don’t want someone else raising my baby while I have to work. I don’t understand why we weren’t good enough. He is going to lead a sad lonely life, and it will be all his fault.

A man will talk about how he’d like to escape from living folks. But it’s the dead folks that do him the damage. It’s the dead ones that lay quiet in one place and don’t try to hold him, that he can’t escape from.
