Huge congrats to Morgan Ashcom for being awarded first place in this year’s Center Choice Awards for his project, What the Living Carry. This project is inspired by the pockets of inhabited woods around his family’s farm and a passage in Cormac McCarthy’s novel, Suttree:
"How surely are the dead beyond death. Death is what the living carry with them. A state of dread, like some uncanny foretaste of a bitter memory. But the dead do not remember and nothingness is not a curse. Far from it."
