More Than Acquaintances

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH

"As Life and Death stood face to face, there was no annimosity to be found - just understanding, respect, and love for everything they were, and will ever be."

More Than Acquaintances explores the delicately intertwined relationship between Life and Death, through the lens of an old Caretaker, and a young Flower Girl, his daughter. Through endless fields of flowers complimented by a vast, star-lit night sky, this showcase aims to highlight these correlated states of being, while urging the viewers to consider their own assumptions and understanding of what it means for someone to truly live, as well as to truly die.

The Ballad Of Life And Death


Price: $5,000

"The Ballad of Life"

There once was a man who would wrestle the stars,
And bottle them up in tiny jars.
With these he then would craft and care;
The countless souls that Life holds dear.

And with each seed, he'd carefully plant
The same cosmic power he wished to grant.
And over time, this power grew
With every flower, to then a new.

As each one blossomed, a soul complete,
He'd watch her pick them from their flowery seat.
And finally standing face to face with Death,
Life simply smiles, and says "Well met."



"The Ballad of Death"

There once was a little girl
Who grew flowers from around the world.
And as they bloomed, each life consumed,
To release a beautiful pearl

These pearls she held so tight,
She'd protect with all her might...
Then guide them home, among stars that shone
Into the beautiful night.

At home among her kin,
She noticed Life's little grin.
Death smiled as well, because she could tell
He'd care for her, and everything else within

In Tandem

There is a story in each of us — constructed with words of power, passion, reverence, and wonder.

Everything In Its Time
