Heaven Weary

“Life Implies Death”

Life Implies Death questions the issues that people with depression face, while showing the viewer unhealthy situations and ideas. Depression clouds healthy judgement and creates illusions in which life seems hopeless and there is no other way out but pain and possibly even harming oneself. Life Implies Death portrays the romanticized version of mental illness (specifically depression) that society has. It explores the idea of covering emotional pain with physical pain and the thoughts of existence itself.
