"I Wish I'd Asked"

This project explores love, loss, regret, and the unanswerable questions that are left behind when the people in our lives die. What do we do with the unfinished business? What about all those questions we meant to ask? Or the questions we never even realized we had? Those questions whose answers are forever lost to us?

You can see a neverending cycle of questions that other people wish they'd asked, or contribute your own.

See project website.
