Yang Zhenzhong: I Will Die

Between 2000 and 2005, Zhenzhong asked various people, of all ages and from all over the world, to look into his camera and say, in their own language, “I will die.” Some are solemn, some are coy, some treat it like a joke or a game; for many of these people, this was probably the first time they had ever made any sort of public acknowledgement of their own mortality.

I Will Die

Zhenzhong’s site has still images, but there also seem to be several videos of the project illicitly posted to YouTube, like this one, this one and this one.
