---Light always means life, but what if use light to show a scene of dying? "After Life" shows the process of degradation after death inspired by fungal community, which works as invisible ecosystem engineers to decompose dead animals and plants. The lights shows a natural scene of an organic underground network that envelops the body and expresses the process of being gradually degraded by fungi. It reduces people’s fear of death, and leads the viewer into the natural afterlife world.
