The conversations span medical, philosophical, folkloric and legal perspectives, offering an insight into the intimate and privileged moments of the artist/participant encounter.
Marie’s research project Whispers? took place in collaboration with St Francis Hospice, UCD School of Social Sciences and Law and The National Folklore Collection.
