The United States’ population of older adults is projected to double by 2050. This unprecedented demographic shift has wide-ranging implications for our society as demand grows for programs and services tailored to the needs of older adults. As many quickly discover, navigating the patchwork of medical, financial, social, and legal systems needed to meet one’s needs in retirement can be a burden requiring complex decision-making in an uncertain environment.
This is a challenge for even the most sophisticated consumers and there is particular concern about older adults navigating these decisions, as converging neuroscientific and economic research indicates that many cognitive skills decline with age—and age is a principal risk factor for impairing conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. Given this body of evidence, many advocate for stronger protections for adults from fraud and exploitation. At the same time, persistent ageism and common misperceptions about the prevalence of cognitive impairment in older adults raise concerns about whether well-intentioned attempts to protect older adults risk depriving them of their rights to make autonomous decisions.
Please join David Faigman in conversation with special guests Daniel Marson and Winston Chiong to discuss current and emerging scientific research about how we make decisions as we age, how physicians assess our capacity to make decisions, and the legal and ethical implications for families and society. Snow Mirror is the first in a series of pieces that celebrate slowness and black and white, in this piece the image of the viewer is created by the congregation and accumulation of white snow flakes in areas of the image that are brighter. The result is projected on a transparent silk fabric which creates a feeling of the flakes being suspended in space. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's 2009 exhibition, Reflections. Shaking Time Mirror is the forth of the "Time Series" Software Mirrors. This series of software mirrors examines notions of time, scanning, motion and stagnation. In Shaking Time Mirror only areas of movement on the screen are refreshed with current video, the rest of the screen ages and turns into a gray stagnant crust. When a viewer moves in front of the piece the crust flakes of and revels the full colored image of the viewer, which gradually grays back. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's summer exhibition, Reflections. Self Centered Mirror is an arrangement of 34 vertical panes of mirror. It has a retro-reflective behavior, this means that anyone standing in front of this mirror will see themselves reflected on all 34 panes, The mirror will also remove anyone else in the space from being reflected. This piece lifts the last obstacle from in the quest to total narcisism. Artist Dan Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's summer exhibition, Reflections. Mirrors Mirror creates the viewers' image by directing 768 small mirror tiles in a way that reflects different portions of their image. The piece is made of 24 columns of "pixels" that form a concaved curved surface that is aimed at the viewer. Brighter pixels reflect the upper body of the viewer and the wall behind him and dark ones are aimed lower. Artist Daniel Rozin will be featured in the Exploratorium's 2009 summer exhibition, Reflections.
