My Grandma was unexpectedly diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. She was given just eight weeks to live; 8 Weeks chronicles our strengthening bond before her passing. She became strong enough to unveil, a life she had locked away for over 50 years. This project documents the family history; archives and personal secrets that my Grandma chose to hide away in an antique wardrobe. We made our discoveries within her feminine bedroom where nobody had ever been allowed, polar opposite to the smoky living area where she spent most of her time. The experience of dying can be comforting, emotionally and through familial unification. I am no longer a granddaughter; I am an author, an archivist, an editor and a memorialist.
