My late grandfather and I used to share many long conversations together. As the end of his days drew nearer, he spoke of how every being would eventually return to earth. No matter what sort of life they have lived or whatever they have possessed and achieved, Nature does not discriminate. Inspired by one of the last few conversations I had with him along with the Chinese belief on moths association with death, Dust to Dust is a quiet reminder of how all life will return to the very soil where life begins.
