THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE BECOME GHOSTS INSIDE OF YOU AND LIKE THIS YOU KEEP THEM ALIVE by Rob Montgomery, 2010

Medium: Installation

Sometimes heartache moves us to create things that lift us up rather than reflect on sadness. When discussing the death of loved ones and the creation of this piece, Montgomery noted that it is "made from recycled sunligh—the sculpture recycles sunlight to illuminate itself, as a metaphor for what we do when we remember someone we love."
