‘Time Moving’, by Kate Sellen at OCAD University, invites members of the public to explore the concept of time and temporal change at end of life by different stakeholders in death in a workshop format. Awareness and management of time at end of life is an integral aspect of decision making and communication at end of life. The experience of time can change as temporal awareness shifts, priorities change, capacity and physical constraints arise. ‘Time Moving’ integrates an exploration of time perception and representation with individual and collective responses developing over the duration of the festival as members of the public express their own ideas of time and temporal perception. The work invites members of the public to participate in a series of drop-in workshops to share perceptions and imaginings of the experience of time at end of life using everyday materials, posing questions about disorientation/orientation to time horizons, perceptions of time as we move towards death, while building curiosity about decision making towards end of life.

Series Description

We are all going to die, so why not talk about it? ‘Dying.’ an event series, explores death through the lens of design and art, running during the DesignTO Festival.

‘Dying.’ is in fact about living, living with the human experience of dying; What aren’t we talking about? What matters at end-of-life? Bringing together perspectives from families, caregivers, clinicians, and research to spark public conversation through community creation and interactive experiences. The series invites us to think about our relationship with death and dying as an individual, a member of a family, social network and as a human being in society. Let’s get comfortable with the uncomfortable and start talking about what truly matters.

‘Dying.’ presented by Taboo Health and OCAD University’s Design Studio, is taking place at four exhibits across three locations including public talks and hands on activities in Toronto, January 18-27, 2019.
