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.
