design for death

43 minutes with grandma

43 minutes with grandma by zijina li, xueping chen from china

designer's own words:

The sand of this hourglass is replaced by cremation remains, the timing now is determined by the amount of remains / the body mass of the deceased.

I got 43 posthumous minutes from grandma, this 43 minutes just reminds me of all the beautiful moments before.
