dc.descriptionLife flows constant, the feel of grass under-foot, the smell of strong morning coffee, the sights of people hustling through their daily lives- off to work, gotta pick up the kids, a teenager’s first kiss- the sounds of rush-hour traffic-beeping, honking, taunts yelled through open windows- the taste of your favorite meal. Suddenly-silence. I seek out the stories of those who have returned from the brink of death, those whose lives have been haunted by it, and those who are approaching death’s silence. In collecting stories I create objects for the audience to explore leading them to their own relationship with death and bringing to the forefront of thought life- shattered and maimed and made whole again through various customs and across multitudes of theologies, beliefs, and ideals.en_US
dc.description.abstractWhat does it truly mean to live? The contact and relationship we have with death is often hushed and ignored; the finality of human existence is explored in these stories I have collected from strangers. Their relationship with death has been studied in conjunction with the the five stages of grief: anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and denial (by Dr. Kübler Ross). Paired with audio, six foot tall boxes transport the audience to a solitary moment shared between strangers. Ten boxes in two lines create a hallway with a single table at the end after following these many perspectives of death and dying. The table stands alone as a reason to continue to live- death comes for al in a terrifying unknown way but it also gives life purpose.en_US
