A Nature Morte scene is brought to life , through three animated objects, representing stages in the grieving process.

The first object is in the form of a seashell that acts as a "Comfort Object"; it retains the deceased’s heartbeat. The viewer is invited to take hold of the seashell and place it close to their own hearts. The second object is a weeping black stone that sheds tears when detecting the presence of a person. It has the mechanics of an hourglass containing dripping tears, while the griever processes their pain and emotions. The last and final object is a stuffed, white bird that giggles with the deceased's voice every time somebody laughs. Together with humor and laughter, the bird marks acceptance and emerges through the sorrow with renewed energy.


Additionally, the project includes a library of "Mourning Objects". The visitors of the exhibition received a questionnaire that was designed to help them think about parameters for a customized object, their answers were entered into an AI system that generated an image of the object.
