The living interact with the dead. We live in a funerary landscape that surrounds us, that is inside us. We fold memories of the dead into the space of the living. We embrace death, even while we turn away from it. 'Phantom Limb' presents a series of encounters with death, and a reflection on loss, in photographs and sculptures. 'Phantom Limb' speaks to the relationship between the living and the dead as trace—vestiges of what is now absent. With photographs and sculptures, I turn towards death, deaths I have and have not experienced. I create a funerary terrain of my own making. I prepare for loss.
