This is a final-year project as a graphic design student in UWE, Bristol. The aim of my project is to encourage people to treasure their time by studying the relationship between time and age. People always say older people may experience more in their life and have a stronger feeling of time, such as the changes of city, culture and lifestyle in the process of aging. Therefore, I want to focus on documenting the experiences and stories of older people and find out how people of different ages think of time and age. In response to ageing, I aim to collect people’s feeling of time and age, and use “photos” as a medium to relate the changes of time. It helps to remind people that time is invisible and allows them to reflect on their own life by understanding more about old people’s feelings and stories. Read Less

Self-directed Study as a graphic design student in UWE, Bristol
 

This is a final-year project as a graphic design student in UWE, Bristol. The aim of my project is to encourage people to treasure their time by studying the relationship between time and age. People always say older
people may experience more in their life and have a stronger feeling of time, such as the changes of city,
culture and lifestyle in the process of aging. Therefore, I want to focus on documenting the experiences and
stories of older people and find out how people of different ages think of time and age. In response to
ageing, I aim to collect people’s feeling of time and age, and use “photos” as a medium to relate the
changes of time. It helps to remind people that time is invisible and allows them to reflect on their own life by
understanding more about old people’s feelings and stories.

In previous months, I have done a series of interviews with older people in different places in Bristol, from nursing home,
retirement apartment, community center and homes. After collecting stories of different people, I came up with a series of etching works based on drawing of the eyes from selected people. This is the process of etching work.
