Urn Burial

Brian Booker is the Brooklyn-based visual artist responsible for creating the mixed media assemblages you see above.  he collect preserved marine invertebrates, seashells, stones, and pages from antique texts, which are then cast in resin and mounted in wooden boxes.  In addition to creating these beautiful shadow boxes, Booker has a Ph.D in English lit, and completed his dissertation on the work of David Foster Wallace.  He is a man after my own heart.
