Sound Design for Website / App Platform
Tickets for the Afterlife aims to introduce people to planning end of life wishes. Through visual communication, interaction and personal decision making. It uses artistic research methods that position diverse rituals and potential futures as options to be chosen within the digital experience/ website. It also uses the library's collections of books as a way of giving people personalised recommendations for further inquiry. The Tickets for the Afterlife website was creatively directed by Dr Stacey Pitsillides with graphic designer Elena Demireva, web developer’s Parvin Asadzadeh Birjandi & Tom Hegarty and sound designer Emma Margetson. Content research and co-design with Dr Claire Nally and the Death Positive Library team. Together this team have investigated the role of Death Positive Libraries during the pandemic through author/Filmmaker Q&A’s, death cafes and A Grief Spoon Room with the Loss Project. This project has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, Carnegie UK, and The Wolfson Foundation and has recently been awarded the Health and Wellbeing Award from Libraries Connected, an organisation which promotes and represents libraries as important resources at the heart of communities. Presented online and at Redbridge Central Library, Newcastle City Library and Kirklees Libraries between 27th October - 19th November 2021.
