你接觸過患上腦退化症的人嗎?

「藝術砌故仔」透過拼貼畫的形式讓香港年青人與老年人能一起交流和共創創作。我們的設計伙伴包括參與活動分享他們生活故事的老年人和腦退化症患者。

Have you ever meet someone with dementia?

We created situations for some young people to have meaningful engagement with older Hong Kong citizens. These design partners include active senior citizens who are co-creators of their designs and also patients with dementia who share personal stories.

拼貼腦人生

Collaging Dementia Stories

2018年春天,啟民創社與香港青年藝術協會合作以「拼貼腦人生」創作方法,安排工作坊讓年青人與日間院舍的老年人互動。過程中,年青人透過拼貼畫的創作手法收集不同程度腦退化症患者的生活故事。

In spring 2018, Enable Foundation collaborated with HKYAF to use the Dementia Collage, a method originally developed by the Enable Foundation to guide young people to engage with senior citizens who live in care homes who have different levels of dementia, and collect their life stories.

塗出香港故事

Colouring our Hong Kong Histories

你知道香港老一輩人年輕時的生活片段嗎?

這次「拼貼腦人生」有逾30位老年人參加,他們的精彩人生故事被整理成為兩大主題:「農食天地」及「腦港生活」。大家在參與快樂填色的同時,分享上一代人的共同經驗及快樂的香港故事。

Do you know what our elderly did when they were young?

Over 30 senior citizens were engaged, and two main storylines were developed: From Farm to Table and Days of Our Lives. They are the collective stories of our older generations and became patterns for all of us to share while colouring happily.

ABOUT DEMENTIA GOING  

腦化城市 

 

不只是忘記 , 歡迎來到「腦化後樂園」

認知障礙症或腦退化症在香港普遍被視為年老過程中的一部分,較少得到特別關注。此症複雜性高,對於大部分人來說更是神秘,因為大眾普遍將腦退化症理解作記憶力衰退。正當醫療和社會護理專家忙着研發治療方法和新服務幫助患者及其照顧者之際,另一邊廂,作為設計研究員的我們相信,設計可以在這議題上幫助大眾進一步理解腦退化症的謎團。「腦化城市」計劃的目標是誠邀各位市民走進「腦化後樂園(2018年)」, 延續腦退化與魔法的概念,嘗試用設計將腦退化物件推廣至城市層面,讓大家透過這個以腦退化症徵狀作創作靈感的體驗展覽空間,認識腦退化症並不只是忘記東西,而是有更多其他重要的徵狀,並且鼓勵大接納患者如常般外出、在社區當中生活。

 

BEYOND MEMORY LOSS – WELCOME TO DEMENTIALAND

With the risk of exaggeration, in Hong Kong dementia is considered to be part of the natural ageing process, and, thus, receives little special attention. Because of its complexity, dementia is mysterious for many people and generally understanding is limited to memory loss only. While the medical and social care experts are busy developing cures and services to help patients with dementia and their carers, we believe the contribution of design researchers could lie in enabling the public to better understand this mystery. From designing demented objects, we want to expand the concept of dementia and magic to the whole city. We aim to prepare all citizens ready to welcome patients with dementia to go out and live within their communities. The parameter of our Neuro City design research project is to get the public to have a better understanding of dementia by inviting them to step into “DementiaLand (2018)”, a dementia-inspired magical environment, to experience different symptoms that go beyond just memory loss.
