Survived By

After examining the five stages of grief during a deep period of it, I found there was much beauty in the way we inhabit these stages. While delving into this process and the choices of those who survive those who pass, I played with juxtaposing how these stories might overlap as we are left to grieve and yet participate in society while the world spins madly on.
