The Mexican Day of the Dead festival is a unique celebration, where those that we have loved and lost are remembered. Redbridge Libraries invites you to come and take part in this vibrant celebration of life and death in an arts festival based on Dia de Los Muertos. This ‘Tickets for the Afterlife’ installation will appear as a one-day pop up as part of this festival.
From the Egyptians, who believed that they held the keys to immortality, to the ghosts that we all hold in our machines - divine spectres that live in that space between pixel and memory. Together we will explore how the digital world has allowed us new forms of communication with the dead.
The exhibition reflects on developments in diversity and inclusivity by design in the current creative Cypriot landscape. There has been an interest in exploring themes involving the diverse design group from generic or specific geographical locations. Installation title: Tickets for the Afterlife.
Love does not end when someone dies. Love evolves and takes on new forms, living on through technology, through the earth cradling our bodies and the memories, which we keep in our hearts and on our devices.
Explore your own legacy with experts in the field of death and bereavement. They will help you chart the myriad of choices in the future showing how death can be approached as creative affirmation - of love and loss. By considering your own mortality and what you would like to happen to your body and legacy, our experts will help guide you in setting up your own Legacy Document, detailing the future of your body and extending your presence beyond death.
Love after Death is an installation that guides participants through the live creation of a legacy agreement. It explores how people want to grieve and what they want to leave behind in future. This experience is based on current research and innovation, which is presented as speculative options for people’s future legacy.
Each legacy agreement documents a person’s ideas of mortality – to take away and reflect on. It introduces people to planning end-of-life wishes and asks all participants to think through key questions about being human at the end of life.
