If I could.

This question comes up in a variety ways.

If you could do anything you wanted in life, what would it be?  If the whole world were to disappear tomorrow, what you would do today? If you knew you were going to die soon, how would you live out your remaining days?  Throw all caution to the wind, forget the rules – what are ALL your dreams?

The Buried Life is a group of young men from Victoria, British Columbia who pressed pause to the normal life of school and work as society knows it, and set out to break boundaries- to see their dreams come true.  Their journey attracted the attention of the world.  And in their quest, they reached out to and asked others to tell them, what do you want to do before you die?

The responses flooded in. And with that, The Buried Life had select artists turn these “before-I-die-I-want-to…” wishes into visual pieces of artwork to share with all of us.

Only some of many:
