Ever since I was a child, I've thought about death and my own mortality almost every day. The relationship I have to death is complicated-- in many ways, the childish fixation has harmed and scared me, while in others, it has enhanced my quality of life. "Death" is a type driven Biodiagram that takes an account of the impact that this fixation has had on me, in both harmful and helpful ways, and challenges others to consider their relationship with mortality in a new way.
