Death Bear Goes Visiting

According to performance artist Nate Hill, this imposing ursine visitor is just a humble servant of the dispirited and the lovelorn:

We all have someone or something we would rather just forget. Things fall apart. Love hurts. Dreams die. But when you summon Death Bear to your door, you can rest assured that help has come … Death Bear will take things from you that trigger painful memories and stow them away in his cave where they will remain forever allowing you to move on with your life.”

In the CNC short below, Death Bear recounts his most harrowing adventure into the sadness of others’ lives.
