Death and The Afterlife

Death to me has always been a diverse and fascinating subject, but in today’s modern society it is a sensitive topic which is not openly spoken about and has always been related to negative and cruel connotations. Peoples fear of death emanates from the fear of the unknown and that which is out with personal control, yet our ancestors dealt with death in an open and unfearful manner. They manifested out of body experiences and created stories of continuous life outside the mortal realm where the soul could live eternally, but no one can fully comprehend what happens to us after we die. This project focuses upon the conceptual representation of death, and the journey the body takes through the four stages of the afterlife.
