Media as a means to eternity

We don’t know if there is life after death, or if it really is the end of our existence.

The idea that everything I do, achieve and think of will be lost with my death is truly terrifying. Therefore, I have become obsessed with the notion of an eternal existence.

For me, media has become a tool against mortality. Publishing photos, videos and ideas is not only to show the contemporary world who I am, but has also become a way to ensure my survival and show the future world who I was.

Knowing that my media is everlasting, people can let go of and retrieve me when and whenever it is needed.
