Death is the thing that I would consider my biggest fear in life. My fear started at a young age when I had the realization that because I am the youngest in my immediate family, and one of the youngest in the extended family, I would likely that I would have to watch most people I care about pass away before me. As a 21-year-old, I’ve been forced to confront my fear of death through attending multiple funerals for both people I’ve had close personal connections to, and those who I’ve barely known. My more intimate experiences with loss have allowed me to start understanding the process of dying as a positive part of life itself. Through my work I explore my own associations and interpretations of death, and try to help viewers see it as something which can have both negative and beneficial repercussions.
