Dan Browne - Memento Mori (2012)

Život kao epileptički napadaj (trenutak može trajati vječno i obratno).

A meditation on (im)mortality, mediated by a lifetime of images.
"A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face." - J.L. Borges
