These drawings are of hotel beds the morning after sleeping in them. They are drawn with the NeoLucida, a modern update to the 19th century camera lucida. The optical drawing aid uses a prism to overlay a ghost image of your subject over your paper for tracing.
Ubi Sunt (translated as “Where are they?”) is a poetic motif found especially in medieval Latin poems. By posing a series of questions about the fate of the strong, beautiful, or virtuous, these poems meditate on the transitory nature of life and the inevitability of death.
