DEATH IS THE ONLY CERTAINTY IN LIFE
South Beach, Miami 2009
A plane flies over South Beach with a banner that reads: “Death is the only certainty in life”.
The original phrase intended for the project read: “We are all going to die”. Nevertheless the Federal Aviation Administration decided to censor the project due to the alarm such a phrase could create amongst the population.
A series of phrases related to the awareness of death and life were sent to the airline for the approval of the FAA. “Death is the only certainty in life” was allowed. Its shorter version: “Death is the only certainty” was not allowed.
