works well for the new Pop Up Exhibition which runs until 19th February.
The exhibition, NEW OLD confronts the physical (things like support clothing) as well as sociological - one way of highlighting a long life is the books/knowledge that could be shared.
|The knowledge of a longer life as book titles|
|A lot of life|
In fact the issue (if we make it past potential environmental challenges) is that the balance of the population is going to change in terms of age - the headline figure for me was that 50% of newborns will live past 100 - how will marriages survive this? What doe this mean to employment (taking into account too how robotics and computerisation will affect work), I guess far more of us will have 'multiple' careers and engage more than once with higher education.
|Part of the issue is our attitudes|
Big Pharma could be amongst the industrial winners - with drugs helping us with the physical and mental challenges
Part of the challenge is the dichotomy of deterioration versus 'age is just a number'
Doors and fundI've got a £20 note in there now!
It's Friday the 13th!
Many of the doors to date have been painted and with glass - perhaps those that aren't feel suitable for less secure areas and arrangements?
