There is much rabbinic material on what happens to the soul of the deceased after death, what it experiences, and where it goes. At various points in the afterlife journey, the soul may encounter: Hibbut ha-kever, the pains of the grave; Dumah, the angel of silence; Satan as the angel of death; the Kaf ha-Kela, the catapult of the soul; Gehinom (purgatory); and Gan Eden (heaven or paradise). All classic rabbinic scholars agree that these concepts are beyond typical human understanding. Therefore, these ideas are expressed throughout rabbinic literature through many varied parables and analogies.
Yerin Do adds leather “parasites” to wooden furniture
Graduate designer Yerin Do presented leather clothes hooks that slot into wooden surfaces to make them look like they’re infested with fungi at the Royal College of Art degree show, For her Parasite Hooks project, Do drilled angled holes into the wooden surfaces of a wardrobe and an armchair. She described the process as “like planting” and told Dezeen that the project references the natural world. “Mushroom and moss grow on the trunks of trees, mussels growing on sea rocks – I am fascinated by these creatures that use the surface of another being as their base,” said Do. “They change its appearance and characteristic entirely.”

The Mountain Goats-Yoga
We had our passports out
And the kits to fix ‘em up with.
And the hurricane lamp
threw our shadows on the ceiling.
I watched ‘em box with one another up there
Punch and Judy.
It was lovely, it was awful,
It was that kind of feeling,
when you said it was real sure
that there was nothing standing in our way.
And the lie ran off and hid itself
in the alleys all across Bombay.
I saw you knock the lamp over
while reaching for the scissors
and I wondered how we’d ever
get by without it.
And you fell into my arms then,
sweet and gentle.
Poison in the water
little doubt about it.
And you said that one of us
would be all alone someday.
And the truth of it echoed
inexhaustibly up and down the thoroughfares
all across Bombay.
