I spent an entire evening having one-on-one conversations of approximately 15 minutes centered on death, in an especially created installation. The visitors were welcome to share their stories, fears, and concerns, while I visualized these encounters, incorporating my own responses into the drawings.
The result became a collective diary based on the intuitive visualization of verbalized reflections on death. Each drawing became an individual psychological portrait of sorts of every participant.

The process of the life drawing was filmed from above and projected on a big charcoal drawing of a brain.
