death wish

The writing's on the wall.

'Last meals' is curated by Jonathan Kambouris, for a tunnel underpass in Singapore. Death row prisoners from the US lining the tunnel in an exhibit titled 'Art & the Law'. Macabre and so chocolate chip ice cream, one pitted olive, one tortilla chip, garden salad, a banana, steak, eggs, hash brown, Eucharist sacrament, nothing...

The Straits Times used to run a column featuring a chef and then ask what their last meal would be. Morbidly fascinating stuff. D for death wish.

  1. Death penalty...I have mixed feelings about this.
    Great take on the theme!!

    D is for detail...

  2. As you say, morbidly fascinating. Good choice for the letter D.

  3. That is morbid! But it is fascinating to hear what people would eat as their last meal.
    Great D!

  4. I thin this is one of the weirdest and coolest D posts! Like Mar, I have mixed feelings about death penalty, but I ended up getting morbidly attracted to the wishes people from the death corridr have... Very much a Stephen King kind of thing!

    Kisses from Nydia.

  5. Morbid, to be sure--more so: that which those folks on death row did to be on death row.

  6. There are websites, such as with last meals and others e.g., with final words. Interesting that a small percentage of the latter still maintain their innocence, which has always made me wonder about the death penalty altogether.

  7. A provocative D post, for sure. It does stir mixed emotions. I wonder if the victims had a choice for their last meal.

  8. Wishing you a Happy and Enjoyable Chinese New Year!

  9. Made me think!
    Thanks so much for participating! Denise (ABC Team)


Great to see you ~Irene
