Bodiless memorials, which usually memorialize at the site of death, rather than of the body, reflect current society's denial of the corpse, displacing the dead body and temporarily transforming public space into a bereavement space. These spaces, however, are becoming smaller in both geography and time, as public memorialization either must be appropriated by the public arena or forced back into the private realm.
