Help Us Change!

An outreach team of Grim Reapers are sent by their home company to conduct surveys about their public image and the services they provide.

Over a period of time the Grim Reapers change their appearance and manner to try and reflect the public's suggestions.

The Reapers struggle to change - as do many people, ideologies and organisations in the modern world.  Their surveys invoke a public discussion both about the value of change and our relationship to death in modern society.  By attempting to adopt social media skills and using a V-log website the Grim Reapers attempt to bring the conversation to a wider audience online.
