FORM Magazine has featured my project inter|section

Design and Grief Although death is an inescapable part of life

that we must all face sooner or later, whether on account

of our own mortality or through the loss of friends and family

members, as a topic it is still a large taboo. Procedures and

ceremonies in many cases rest on rigid, centuries-old traditions

and leave little room for a more modern and more individual

approach to leave-taking and mourning. The following projects,

however, signal a change: designers, it seems, are now embracing

this aspect of life and are using their capacity for empathy

to facilitate the process of mourning and to initiate a

proactive engagement with this difficult theme.
