Open Casket IX is a memorial for people who have lost loved ones to police violence. Here, traditional materials of memorial like stone are used alongside video and vocal compositions. Open Casket IX explores ways in which grief is non-linear without a clear pathway to an end - exerting its force on us from every direction.
