A highly personal project I created for TedX Sydney, 2018 under the theme “Humankind”.
I decided to interview friends, family (and a buddhist monk) about their attitudes and experiences with death. A subject we too often shy away from, but once we start talking about it, we soon discover it can be quite comforting.

I chose to animate my subjects as animals and objects, helping to destigmatise an often painful or delicate topic.
