There is death in the air…always.
Death seen and unseen.
How do we reach the inevitable end in our conscious being whilst being spiked with the knowledge that our unconscious self has a part to play? This duality of being nurtures a quest for expansion to the physical and metaphysical worlds that we inhabit, but how? This initial impulse is where a new piece of work for the Fabrica Vitae exhibition in Ghent, Belgium is evolving.
“People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad.” Marcel Proust
“I can remember how when I was young I believed death to be a phenomenon of the body; now I know it to be merely a function of the mind — and that of the minds who suffer the bereavement. The nihilists say it is the end; the fundamentalists, the beginning; when in reality it is no more than a single tenant or family moving out of a tenement or a town.” William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying
“Death is no more than passing from one room into another.” Helen Keller

‘Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again.’ Jean Luc Picard
