Title: Liar’s Springtime
Creator: Avery Cardosi
Death is an incredibly abstract concept that can be characterized in a variety of different ways, because no living human has truly experienced it. For all of us, death is an occurrence we can only imagine. It is a phenomenon we can observe, but never witness firsthand. In “Liar’s Springtime”, I wanted to explore the illusions we create for ourselves and those closest to us in order to simultaneously reveal and avoid the inevitable.
