A meditation on (im)mortality, mediated by a lifetime's compendium of images, memento mori is a layered time-lapse exploration of the total photographs captured over the course of the filmmaker's life - over 120,000 in total. This all-seeing archive is blended into permutations and combinations of subjects, objects, percepts, dreams, and experiences, to form an encyclopedic index of the possibilities of sight.

"A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patent labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face." - Jorge Luis Borges
