    What would be our modern-day memento 'mori' or 'vanitas'?

    In Roman times, a general on his victory parade had a slave on hand to whisper reminders of his mortality In Baroque painting, still life pictures painted with realism and accompanied by a skull reminded viewers of their eartly impermanence. Christian Marclay's 'The Clock', the recent contemporary art piece suggests it is cinema. Do you agree?
