About "don't die dead."
"don’t die dead“ responds to a fundamental issue of our society: We are born into pre-existing patterns, we learn to live with them, and we dissolve into them. We adapt, we consume, we are comfortably numb.
"don’t die dead.“ urges us not to die internally dead. In this piece, we create the narrative of possibilities - the possibility to reflect, escape the patterns and actively take control to change our world — everyone on their own, within every moment of their lives.
