A Conversation with Death provides an opportunity to deepen a viewers’ understanding of the imprint that death leaves on life. A unique set of physical and virtual book artifacts describe death as an intimate process, transition and passage within an individual’s life. This project is a self-driven journey of discovery. Aided by an online blog to access available resources the viewer considers the effects of death related issues in their life. Tactile and virtual form, hand drawn images and first person interview excerpts blend within selected book formats to trigger personal insights and associations. The final output is fine art touching on death education and Thanatology.
