In this project we had to do a reinterpretation of the literary genre Danse Macabre. Alongside Laura Panchaud and Aina Fontich, the subject was approached by changing the point of view. We thought that, instead of the death being the one that comes to us, we should be the ones going to it. In other words, comitting suicide. We extracted the text from The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus and the images from the documentary The Swedish Theory of Love.

The idea behind this is to show the time lapse, which is different for each person.  To accomplish that concept we used the photolithography technique in cmyk, where the colours are reduced in every page symbolizing the diminishing of a person's lifetime.
