Mourning Glory

Sat 1 Feb 2014

Brian Lobel’s installation and performance trilogy about love, death and technology, inspired by the loss of his best friend and first love, probes the emotional resonances hidden in everyday technologies such as playlists, online profiles and email histories.

The first installation guides participants through the process of making a playlist for their own funeral in a gentle and playful reminder about what remains behind when we’re gone. A reflection on mortality and responsibility, this self-led performance explores the rituals of mourning, memory and the music that goes with them.
