Japanese death poems (jisei), are traditionally written upon a monk's demise. For this project, I wrote 36, corresponding to the Japanese version of the Chinese game Mah Jong. The poems correspond in theme and colour to each Mah Jong tile and its spiritual significance. After writing them in English, I translated them via Google Translate into Japanese.
