“Advice for the Living” by Art in Transit

Advice for the living is a project launched by Art in Transit, created by Labspace Studio and produced in association with Pattison Onestop.

As described on the project’s website:

Revealing, funny, candid and heartfelt nuggets of wisdom from seniors (over the age of 70) and children (under the age of 7) are set to capture the attention of more than one million daily TTC subway commuters.

Advice for the Living is a social experiment, public intervention and video art project developed by artists John Loerchner & Laura Mendes, Co-Directors of Labspace Studio. The project explores the elusive and interrelated themes of wisdom, knowledge, and the ongoing search for happiness.

From July 15 – 28, 2013, Advice for the Living will play on the network of Pattison Onestop’s TTC subway platform screens in over 60 stations on more than 300 screens across Toronto.
