ELEGY: AN OPEN PROJECT ABOUT DEATH AND DYING
  
Life's only certainty is its end.  The manner of that end is unknown but the universal consensus is that it be quick, peaceful and painless. 

Such a luxury does not correspond to the facts of human ageing and prolonging life medically, as an end in itself, is an increasingly double edged sword. Nor does it correspond to a contemporary environment where violent death as entertainment merges into 24 hour media cycles of violent death as reality.

Death defines life. The extent to which it is an abstraction is dependent mostly on where and when one’s life is located. It can also be choice as much as no choice.

This project is an entirely open platform for people to communicate about death and about dying. This can be in the form of video, audio, text, poetry, images, animation, playlists or a combination of these things. Each submission will be given its own page and the only stipulation is that videos do not exceed 8 minutes and playlists do not exceed 6 tracks.

This project is for anyone, not only artists. If you would like to contribute something please send an initial email with your contact details and a brief outline of your idea. New and existing work can be submitted and anonymity will be respected if desired.  Submissions may not always be accepted but I am very happy to advise, collaborate and help facilitate new projects
