‘What will you leave behind’ – an art installation in the  Ardel Gallery in Bangkok, 2013 by Nino Sarabutra who filled a gallery floor with more than 100,000 miniature porcelain skulls that visitors would walk on. Words from the artist:

‘I want people to ask themselves how they live, what are they doing
– if today was your last on earth, what will you leave behind?’

Nino asked a range of people to help create the skulls – friends, family, neighbors, students, workers etc. While making them, they were asked to contemplate their life and think about what they will leave behind.

  1. What an unusual installation. But the questions that are asked are just as important as the visual and physical sensations of walking upon it.

  2. I think the artist asked the wrong question.

    I think the question, in current times, would be:

    “How does it feel to walk over other people’s faces – to get where you’re going?”

  3. Oh my goodness….that was eerily beautiful, creepy, disturbing, and thought-provoking at the same time…0_0
    but I don’t think I’d have the guts to walk across that room of skulls without a shudder…:S
