A celebration of the human form, in all its beauty, awkwardness, grounded, ungrounded, comfortable, uncomfortable. The life room is a place where people can connect with the drama and honesty of being alive, in an unmasked state.
Observations from the life room is a series of drawings, installation and film intended to connect the audience with the vibrancy that can emerge when one remembers that life is fleeting.
