151MC: Artist Statement

When you see the words ‘Ageing Population’ most people think about the elderly. I want it to mean something different to you by the end of these videos.

The purpose behind this project is to capture the current ageing population, meaning people specifically aged between 18-80, as if it were a video time capsule that presents the life stories of those living in the now. The participants in these videos will be talking about their personal lives and own opinions as they respond to questioning on the topics typically associated with ageing through life such as use of technology, memories gained and how they feel about ageing physically and emotionally.

When you watch these videos, I want you as the viewer to form an opinion as you agree or disagree with the views of the people, or even have some memories evoked by the stories.

Try not to be emotionally moved by the beauty of reality, I dare you.
