Challenging the initial stages of dementia
The installation ‘Uitvertraagd’ is meant to trigger the intrinsic motivation of people in the initial stages of dementia to be more active. By representing simple actions in aesthetic slow-motion the act of creating something beautiful becomes more accessible. ‘Uitvertraagd’ stimulates conversations between people with light forms of dementia and their families and carers and offers insight into a person’s interests.
