拼貼腦人生

COLLAGING DEMENTIA STORIES 

 

患上腦退化症的人到底是甚麼樣子?

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。

 

WHO ARE PATIENTS WITH DEMENTIA? 

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.

 

你接觸過患有腦退化症的人嗎?

「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.

塗出香港故事

COlouring our Hong Kong Stories

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由啟民創社的設計研究團隊整理成為兩大故事主題:「農食天地」及「腦港生活」。啟民創社聯同本地插畫師麥東記和設計工作室Hato STUDIo創作了一系列的屬於香港人的腦塗圖案,讓市民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 by our team of design reseachers: FROM FARM TO TABLE AND DAYS OF OUR LIVES. illustrator Don Mak and graphic design stuio Hato were invited to join the project, and created a series of dementia Stories visual system, THEY represented THE COLLECTIVE STORIES OF OUR Hong Kong 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.

Let's talk about HOME STREET HOME 家在街

enabletalk0001.jpg

《家在街:香港自建社區》新書展覽+發佈會

《家在街:香港自建社區》是一個關於深水埗通州街天橋底自建社區的設計研究,通過設計學生黃思琪(Louise Wong)從2014至2016兩年間進行的實地考察、記錄和分享無家者自建社區生活。研究目的是為打破大眾對「無家可歸」的種種假設及把焦點轉移到自建者的製作上。本書由李欣琪博士、黃志恆及徐巧詩合編,書中收錄了自建社區的研究相集、11種不同類型的自建居所、50多種生活模式,還有來自都市理論和社會學學者Liesbeth Huybrechts和Will Davis的文章,與港中文大學社會工作學系副教授黃洪訪談,嘗試從不同觀點啟發大家思考街道和城市戶外空間的新可能性,重新認識香港「自建社羣」生活的獨創性格。

這個設計研究的記錄、過程中與自建者和香港市民演繹在街頭居住可能性工作坊的模型,將於2018年4月28日至5月2日於深水埗大南街的合舍展出,並在五一勞動節當天舉辦《家在街:香港自建社區》新書發佈會。誠邀各界對於此項目有興趣的朋友前來,參與於5月1日下午舉辦的自建社區遊和分享會, 分享大家對香港自建社區創意的想法。

JOIN US IN SHAM SHUI PO

 

“The countless small actions of unknown people that lie at the roots of those great moments”, Noam Chomsky (2012) 

 《Home Street Home: Hong Kong’s Self-build Communities 》was a two-year intensive engagement design study conducted by Louise Wong, with residents living in Sham Shui Po, one of the Hong Kong slum districts. Instead of analysing the social situation of the homeless community with the aim of developing design solutions to solve the ‘problem’,  the study is reframed around the ingenious ‘design’ skills of self-builders. 

‘Homeless’ is a word used to describe a person without a home and typically living on the streets. However, that a person is ‘living on the streets’ does not mean that they do not have a home. It all depends on the different definitions of home. In this case, there should be multiple versions between traditional forms of home to homeless, and we believe self-builders are those who can create alternative forms of dwellings. The book shares result from types of Self-build Homes (stories of 11 households ) and Patterns of Living ; A photo journey of the matter distributed throughout the book with the aim of giving readers an overall feeling of the real situation while reading its analysis. 

We also included other scholars to enrich the wider context of the study. Will Davis refers to Rudovsky’s 1964 exhibition ‘Architecture Without Architects’ and Jacobs’ advocacy of respect for residents’ ingenuity in living in poor urban areas. Here he also points out that this study aims to break down assumptions associated with ‘homelessness’ and focus on the creativity of self-builders. Dr Liesbeth Huybrechts brings the discussion to a different scale by looking at the role of self-builders’ communities in the design of our cities. From an urban theorist to a sociologist, the next chapter is the transcript of a conversation with Dr Wong Hung, an associate professor in the Social Work Department of CUHK. Here he gives readers the local context including the political and cultural background of the homelessness situation in Hong Kong. Finally, our intention for the book is to suggest an open-ended study. Rather than forming any judgement, our goal is that readers make their interpretations, and create new visions of homelessness

跨代共創香港未來死物  

Co-designing Our Future Fine Dying

社創設計室 = 本地設計學生+ 老年人+社福界專業團體+設計研究員+專業產品設計顧問團隊 + 政府部門

 

我們是啟民創社,從事社會設計的非牟利機構。在政府社創基金資助下,於2017年開展了為期兩年的社創設計室計劃。此計劃的首個項目 —— 死物習作 (Fine Dying),我們找來了一班Enablers,包括200多位香港設計學生和100多位老年人,從香港生死殯葬議題切入,進行了不同程度的跨代共創歷程,過程中產生約200個創新意念。經過團隊整理和分析後,這些新撒灰意念成為擔任死物習作設計顧問(Design Mentor)的專業產品設計團隊Milk Design的設計靈感。我們希望透過一件與用者距離最親近的物件——「死物」( The Object of Death) ,在告別儀式中讓家人表達對先人的最後思念和情感,同時進一步了解香港殯葬服務的文化生活背景、城市規劃,甚至解決未來人口老化、土地短缺等議題,為大眾市民提供更多「死好啲」的選擇和討論。

2018年1月26至28日,社創設計室將會在黃金時代展覽暨高峰會中首次發佈死物習作的計劃內容,與市民分享來自香港老青跨代共創的老齡和生死意念,也會展出新撒灰死物設計系列的概念模具,探討花園葬撒灰物件的不同可能性。 屆時將於1月28日下午有一場「 腦化城市」的共創工作坊,詳細資料請參考黃金時代基金會的網頁goldenage.foundation
