DESCRIPTION

At a time when environmental awareness is so crucial, specialists and scientists are considering ways of burying the dead that are more environmentally friendly but still effectively honor an individual’s life. Katrina Spade, founder of the Urban Death Project, and Karla Maria Rothstein of Columbia University’s DeathLAB start our discussion of new urban development projects envisioned to achieve this purpose. Angela Hennessy, artist and associate professor at California College of the Arts, joins the discussion with perspective on historical and contemporary funeral practices, and also how art can be used to respond to grief and loss. Roy Remer, director of education and training at the Zen Hospice Project, moderates the discussion.
