Okay
Sacred and Profane

As part of the thesis toward reimagining a cemetery as a lively public park, I have researched the relationship between sacred space and profane space. This image series seeks to blur edge conditions in Trinity Square's public spaces, those between street and building interior, but especially those between sidewalk and cemetery. I am directly relating this blurred edge idea to the work of Mircea Eliade on the sacred and profane. We should be able to use cemeteries as the public parks that they actually are. Rather than let our society continue to view cemeteries as off limits to everyday park uses, I argue that we should accept the reminders of death as a positive part of our everyday public life and legacy. Profane activities like smoking a cigarette or going for a jog should be mixed with sacred activities, like visiting one's dead friend.
