In advance of the launch of the Ireland's exhibition at the 2016 Venice Biennale, the accompanying website www.losingmyself.ie, which documents the research and design of the exhibition, is now online. The exhibition in Venice will imagine the Alzheimer’s Respite Centre in Dublin, as experienced by its occupants: people with dementia and their carers.
This website records the experiences of a broad range of people – neuroscientists, psychologists, health workers, philosophers and anthropologists – as well as people with dementia and their families. The design of the website incorporates creative advice from people with dementia and will inform both visitors to the exhibtion and act as a tool for those who wish to research the subject further.
Losing Myself is produced collaboratively by Niall McLaughlin and Yeoryia Manolopoulou
