We All Fall Down

My mom worked at the hospital from my earliest memories through my childhood. This project shows the black and white between life and death, but also the grey area of living in between these moments. For some, the hospital is a place of sickness and death. For me, it was a place of refuge. My babysitters were the nurses coming off 12 hour shifts, or the few minutes of escape during their break. I remember their bleak smiles, and now I know why. The hospital bills were too high. The bills weren’t always tangible, I now see the toll of being a life long caregiver has taken on my own mother, and I think about where the other nurses are now. This hospital being torn down is the conjunction of capitalism and necessity. People get sick, babies are born, the cycle repeats itself. The dollar doesn’t always follow. The bills get too high and buildings get torn down, people get torn down, but in light of that we always rebuild. The roots of necessity grow back, and find a new place to bloom.
