In The Beginning...
The “How Did You Die?” Show began as a visual art exhibit shown at various locations (typically juried, outdoor art shows) in Toronto, Canada from 2004 through 2009. Each piece is approximately 5 X 7 ½ inches and contains text and image. The text is a fictional tale of how the named character died, and the image is a Polaroid image transfer of a photograph displaying the ghostly, painterly quality and inconsistent border typical of this medium. This combination plus the other media lies on
handmade Japanese paper.
All photography, artwork, and writing are by Lisa-Scarlett Cruji.
About The Book
Don’t let the title mislead you... The “How Did You Die?” Show is an artistic and literary prance through life’s joys and trials. The fifty-one images tell stories of passion and of love and minds lost.
This is a thought provoking journey through disparate cemetery scapes, presenting fantastical and evocative accounts of each character’s experience – as well as illustrating how a stapler can be used as a deadly weapon.
