Skin Cold

A parallel between physical death and mental shutdown

Exploring the stages before one dies this work suggests how someone transitions from being a fully functioning human to becoming completely reduced to nothing. Following an abusive relationship between two men the work questions the extent at which one can decay and collapse internally without physically being deceased, suggesting a parallel between physical death and reaching a state of mental shutdown.
