What's it about?

Death, illness and mortality are still a taboo in modern culture. The irony is that they will continue to be until discussion about them is normalized. These Blinks will illustrate the cultural history of death, and highlight personal stories of people who dealt with terminal illnesses and their own deaths, or the mortality experiences of their loved ones—all in an attempt to open the conversation and help people feel less alone.
