Koan Composites is the fourth installment of the temporary temple series by Ari Fish. The focus of this temple was death and rebirth, the right to choose to live or die vs. being killed by another, by disease, or by incident out of one's control. Congregants walked into a temple of a simulated grave that was six feet under ground. They rested on body shaped bags and pads while viewing projections suspended above them.
