THE MONOLITH: DE-STIGMATIZING DEATH

A series of highly visible monuments will act as positive beacons for cities and their inhabitants. The objects are placed in central locations throughout the city and landscape and re-conceptualize the idea of death in direct opposition to conventional approaches of shrouding and marginalizing mourning spaces. The image of death will be a visual reminder integrated into daily life, thus de-stigmatizing it. Generations to come will grow up without associating spaces of memorial and repose with fear, loss, and negativity.
