Chris Barr's 17 Minutes.

"Every 17 minutes, someone commits suicide in the United States."

17 Minutes is a performance and video blog project. Each day I spend 17 minutes standing next to a tree, collapsing at end of the duration. Using time as a signifer this ritual offers a place of reflection, the time between, and deals with the specific circumstance of my own brother's suicide. As a reenactment it aims to be reminder of the life I am engaged in.

Check out Chris Barr's project here: 17 Minutes.

My condolences regarding your brother's passing, Chris.

This is actually really cool. I had an old friend from highschool commit suicide a few months back. What Chris has done is great.
