Lab4Living presents ONE/ Exhibition

Lab4Living ONE/ Exhibition

As part of the 100 Year Life Project, supported by Research England, Lab4Living is exploring the question:

“We are surrounded by objects that shape our existence, from our first to last breath. 

But why do we develop emotional bonds with them?”

Two cubes, one in the CANTOR foyer (named ONE/1), and the other in OWEN reception (named ONE/100) will be in situ at Sheffield Hallam University’s City Campus during the weeks commencing 27th January and 3rd February 2020.

Cube ONE/1 explores this question by presenting objects that are special to you, and therefore one of a kind. Send us a photo of an object that’s meaningful to you, along with the reason or a story of why. Every participant will receive a special memento pack to celebrate their participation. Follow this link to submit your story and image to cube ONE/1:

Cube ONE/100 encourages you to choose an object from those displayed that you really connect to and share with us a story about why it holds meaning in your life.

These two methods ask for you to engage with the exhibition, and allow us to gather as many stories as we can throughout.

Thank you and we look forward to your participation. 

All the best,
