One day, you will die.

2021

One day you will die is an interactive installation inspired by Kaitlyn B. Jones' 2021 Manifesto. This installation was curated by Aisha Tida Abbassi and first appeared on day three of A Time For Action, a six-night experimental inter-disciplinary micro-festival hosted by the Blaffer Art Museum (Houston, TX).

 

Each element in this installation is intended to allow Black visitors an opportunity to reflect on their personal legacy and give reverence to their existence while they are still breathing. Each Black visitor is invited to consider which parts of themselves they will leave behind by responding to six prompts displayed on the surrounding walls.

Flowers are an essential part of this installation. As Black visitors finish responding to the prompts, they are reminded that they do not have to earn their flowers in order to deserve them.
