Hi Meena, I am a student at Victoria University of Wellington School of Design. We are currently undertaking a project for the Wellington City Council, in which we are to envision what Wellington will be like in the year 2040. My take on the project (in brief) is a City where the residents perceive time as the top commodity, and once deceased, the individuals continual value of time data is ‘printed’ embroidered onto cloth ‘bandages’ to use in a death ritual of 2040. I have read the research you are undertaking for the Wellington City and Sea museum and find it very fascinating. I would love the opportunity to talk with you more on your thoughts/research on the different cultural death traditions. If you are free sometime soon, I would love to hear back from you. All the best, Ruth Sumner

Hey Ruth

Hi Meena,

How lovely to hear from you.

Thank you for your email, Please excuse the flakiness of the project at the moment, it’s still in the conceptual phase, should be better resolved by the weekend! the developmental blog of the work is http://ruthsumner. wordpress.com/

I don’t quite understand your concept but am very intrigued to hear more. I’m super busy these days working on http://openideo.com/ (Check it out if you need a new global, designerly, social impact addiction) But am relatively free this weekend if you want to catch up for a coffee. Let me know a time, place that suits if you do. Sunny regards from the south-coast [*] Meena

I would love to meet this weekend, let me know when works for you, I’m pretty much free this weekend as uni is on break for two weeks from this Friday. phew. I look forward to meeting you. All the best, Ruth
