Talking about dying can be difficult, especially if the subject of that conversation is our own mortality or that of our loved ones.


Shared Frameworks is a life‑sized photograph of a human skeleton, turned into a large scale public jigsaw puzzle. It has been designed to offer space for contemplation and relaxed exchanges around our end‑of‑life choices and care.


Shared Frameworks is the first public work coming from The Art + Science of Living + Dying, a Pacitti Company rolling research strand exploring living, dying, language, place and memory. It is made by visual artist and curator Robert Pacitti and landscape historian and Think Tank Associate Lucy Walker, with skeleton photography by Susan Elaine Jones.
