How are we viewed and how do we view ourselves as we get older? Re-framing aging can shine a light on its potential beauty, promote more authentic aging narratives and celebrate the richness inherent in ordinary life.
Five individuals share their perspectives about aging in this 3-channel video installation. Their varied insights encourage viewers to reconsider their assumptions about what to expect when aging, envision new outlooks and empower wider possibilities. (To view a sample clip, just click on an individual's image.)
At each installation, viewers are encouraged to reflect and contribute their thoughts to a display, or participate in creating a response video.
