the viewer’s right side visually weighs more than the left. The burnt furniture forms unity since there is not one piece of furniture that stands out in perfection; therefore, each and every piece is charred. Along with Mourning the Ephemeral , Hyde has many other mixed media installations that are entangled with the idea of being the surviving objects from a fire. For example, she has Scarlet II , Scarlet , and Scratches in Silver . I believe that Allison Hyde has done these charred art pieces because she wants to show her audience the beauty in tragedy. Out of every tragedy that has ever occurred in an individual’s life, there has been beauty. Beauty in a lesson that was contrived or beauty in person, or people, who are brought into the life of the tragedy driven individual. This art work made me also think about how individuals put so much into material things instead of people. How we, as human beings, use people instead of material things. We love material Ibrahim 4

Those people we used won’t be there because we chose to have a relationship with those material things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
