Day 24: I remember you well

Time is so fleeting, many people want it all back again but the best we can do is try to capture moments. A bronze bust captures a person’s face for eternity. I decided to use another metal to create my own bust, one that is so fragile it can be destroyed in a second. This tin foil bust is me at the age of 21 (a long while ago). (Made by forming foil into the original old plaster mould)
