tombstone is usually used as a testimony of death, proving that you have existed before, his functionality is generally higher than its shape, In different nationalities and traditions, different ways and rituals to clean up and interact. Through the process of designing a tombstone. What is concealed is that the tombstone itself has no direct relationship with the deceased except the text. Tombstones have different definitions and shapes, and it has become a place to remember the dead. Through the process of designing a tombstone, which in this context, tombstones are defined according to personal interpretations. Media and historical context do not restrict them. it is a way of guiding us to think about our past and present by commemorating ourselves and through the imagination to write a part of the future, to fabricate the fact of death itself.
Tombstone can be the summation of personal experience, according to this, the “pen” object is used to interpret the temporality of death, the pen has a character that is written and consumed, making traces. Like human memory and life, the experience is the accumulation of different things, for humans, the sum of life experience is tangible and intangible, humans communicate and build relationships through language, language can be told but only through writing or recording can it be completely saved.
But in terms of the materiality of the pen, its existence is recorded and will inevitably leave traces, as a passive, operated tool, through this transformation, thinking about the pen as a life experience, and rethink the process of accumulation and the timeliness of material consumption. The linear composition of the pen and ink is left to be interpreted and imagined by others, because the pen’s functionality has been exhausted and no further defence can be made, leaving only the time to walk up the surface of the tombstone.
