Hayley West

Artist in Blue Mountains Australia

My current research directly relates to a lived awareness of death and memorial. I work with soft sculptural forms, performance and installation. I am currently a Masters by Research candidate with an Australian Post-Graduate Award scholarship, and am also involved in the Green Burial and Death Café movement.

Death Cafe

BY HAYLEY WEST
@ VOL 9 ON FEB 28, 2014

Hayley West introduces the discussion group Death Cafe: where people can talk about death in a relaxed and confidential environment and eat cake too! There is rarely discussion about post-death plans, and Hayley encourages people to think about all post-life possibilities, which she has learned from Death Cafe talks.

@ VOL 11 ON FEB 06, 2015

Hayley West's interest is in fabulously grotesque concrete structures built in the 1930s-50s. Here she shares her passion for the Grottos of the Blue Mountains. Check out her other blog for some great photos - it's a work in progress: Blue Mountains Grotto Love.
