A cloud of paper notes swirl in the wind over a horizon. It’s an ephemeral colour-changing scenery accompanied by a magical soundscape. Each note, written by a child who expresses their sorrow of losing a loved one, starts with the phrase "Sinds jij dood bent… / Ever since you died…" The children are invited to anonymously complete the sentence with honesty and freedom ➝ “Ever since you died… I sometimes call your voicemail.”
Everyone is welcome to contribute a note and let it tumble in the cloud. After finishing your note, just swipe up and let it fly away into the wind. To read, swipe down and catch a paper from the cloud.
Sinds Jij Dood Bent is created in co-production with Het Klokhuis, a Dutch television series for children. It supplements their television special dealing with death, saying farewell and mourning:
Het Klokhuis over Dood en Afscheid
The tool is a safe space for children to express the complex emotions of grief while showing them they are not alone.
