In this piece I was interested in exploring the fear of death and its forthcoming through superstition and ritual. Originally intended as a live performance, I combined the act of walking backwards, believed to be an omen of death, with references to memento mori and vanitas paintings, seeking to interrogate ideas relating to the passing of time and mortality.
