This multimedia installation piece has been created by Liberal Arts and Science students as part of a module which looked at contemporary approaches to life, death and aging.

Drawing influence from SciArt and the work of artists including Damien Hirst and Christine Borland, the work comprises a film – produced, recorded and edited from scratch – with self-made plinths, found objects and integrated quotes taken from interviews conducted with various experts on the subject of death. Interviewees include anatomist Professor Alice Roberts who discussed cremation, a visual artist, a psychotherapist and a psychology scholar.

Presented by Liberal Arts and Sciences in partnership with Research and Cultural Collections
