This poetic animated image of loss, depicting a cluster of women in chadors digging a burial site with their hands was such a strong visual experience which made us think about what death means literally. People die, like all other living things do, which is how the nature is built as to circulate. How about products? Humans created some objects for 'better' living which in our era turned out to be mass produced as industrial products. From this we imagined: What if the products die? How do we effectively kill them by deleting the core asset?

Pencil

Human history began by 'writing'. We killed the pencil by merging the lead into the main barrel.

Hourglass

'Time' is the dimension we can never go against. We killed the hourglass by converting the volume opaque to hide the flow.

Mirror

'Vision' is how human sought for the necessary to survive and to prosper. We killed the mirror by deleting the reflective surface.

Spoon

We need to 'feed' ourselves to breathe and move against gravity. We killed the spoon by filling in the concave area.

Candle

'Light' was one of the first human inventions that distinguished us from other primates. We got rid of the lead, which is the heart of a candle.
