About the Artwork
“Many patients nearing the conclusion of their life’s journey suffer until the very end. On the flip side, I bonded with an exceptional person who was a computer-science expert, composer and cognitive musicologist. As he approached his death, he said, ‘It’s like when a computer screen freezes. So much freedom….’ “
“I’m a surgeon, palliative and spiritual-care expert who loves caring for seriously ill, dying patients and their families. I really enjoy life, and yet I still regularly experience existential struggles.”
