Radicalizing Banality

Whereas death was quite visible in Western societies centuries ago, since the 20th century, death has become more and more unspoken. As a response, this project tries to become a cultural proposition that makes visible death as a process. This project tries to construct a world where banal things become radicalized, confronts the American suburban residences with those radical objects in an architectural setting, and invites them to contemplate the existence of death and their proximity to death.
