Frame: Encouraging Death Reflection Through a Digital and Physical Experience

When was the last time you thought about death? In recent years, a growing body of both anecdotal and scholarly research has brought attention to the positive effects death cognition can bring to your personal and professional life. Death has the potential to be a clarifying force in our lives like nothing else. Frame is a physical and digital experience that provides a secular framework through which users can reflect on death in a positive and constructive way. It achieves this through encouraging regular meditation on aspects of death reflection, encouraging actionable change tailored to the user, and a tangible object that helps the user focus their attention. Let’s be part of the generation that changes how society thinks about death and dying.
