Title Gravity
Date 2010-05
Description Gravity is a work of fiction focused on our inevitable endings and our ability to ignore the signs of impending termination. The protagonist is a depressed, alienated office worker who gets off the elevator on the floor of his employer just after a catastrophic event occurs that will lead to the collapse of the structure. He is able to ignore the screams of everyone else in the office space, and his reaction to the panic of everyone else is that of a "Home Alone"esque self indulgence, while he still finds himself unable to escape his feelings of inadequacy and paranoia of being judged by others. His realization of impending death comes after passing a point-of-no-return for postponing his death.
