Industry of Loss, is a photography book designed to resemble a funeral parlor brochure paired with an installation of a funeral gathering space. The funeral space is accompanied by a victorian style couch, coffee table, rug, flowers, wallpaper and the photography book placed on the coffee table for the viewer to read. I built the space to immerse the viewer in the environment that the book examines in order to create an interactive experience. Industry of Loss is a non-linear narrative describing the economy surrounding human grief and the grieving process itself. It examines the grieving process and contrasts it with time, memory and funerary practices. The work examines the way my christian culture responds to loss and how we interact with each other when faced with it.
