The Unacknowledged project focuses on deceased individuals who have no family or others to claim their bodies after they die. This means that there is no funeral, no obituary, no celebration of life. The project The Unacknowledged allows for an acknowledgment of the lives and deaths of these men and women. Others may assume them powerless, if only in their invisibility after death. This project gives them back a voice, but also raises questions about what it means to die unacknowledged.
