Inspired Lives: Discovering Life in Imagination

Inspired Lives: Discovering Life in Imagination shares the original voice of suicide survivors. It reveals the deeply personal experiences of individuals who are working through their struggles, finding inspiration and taking steps towards healing.Regional artists Mic Eales and Konii C Burns draw on personal narrative and symbolism in their installation-based artworks to explore the psychological and spiritual crisis of suicide and its damaging aftereffects. Their imaginative and immersive large-scale artworks use found objects and materials of the natural world to give shape to painful emotions, in turn, transforming them into expressions of hope.
