Part podcast, part immersive performance, Vanitas blends historical documentary with contemporary mystery in an experiential meditation on death. Relax, listen and let yourself be drawn into the seductive world of sixteenth century Dutch painting and the decoding of a 300 year old message told through the Language of Flowers.

CHAPTER ONE - 70 minutes

Explore all things Vanitas through six short episodes featuring the voices of curators, florists, flower growers, botanists, flower painters and artists. Immerse yourself in new music, field recordings and stunning historical images. Headphones required.

CHAPTER TWO - 70 minutes

Visit a participating cemetery guided by eleven short episodes exploring burial and cremation practices that take you closer to your own date with destiny. An immersive new app experience that mixes real-life documentary with touching speculation about the fate that awaits us all: death. Headphones required.

Details of participating cemeteries can be found at: http://vanitas.online/#dates
