Taking inspiration from Matthew Day Jackson’s Sepulcher (Viking Burial Ship) (2004), Dawn Clements asked YI Writers to create text for a ceremony marking a significant moment in their lives. They used a variety of art making methods and materials to create letters, scrolls, or other objects to commemorate personal turning points they have already reached or that they hope to complete in the future.
