Dimitry Suzana

Department: Man and Well being

Unfit to Live

What: An immersive experience to explore the ethical debate around end of life choice.

Why: None of us would choose death over life if pain and exhaustion didn’t make our existence unbearable. But those who feel unable to carry on living should be offered an escape, believes Dimitry Suzana, who has seen a family member with ALS suffer under current legislation.

How: Imagine someone stuck in a box. Imagine watching someone who has the power to let them out ignore their wish. If it’s cruel not to let someone out of a box, why deny someone trapped in their body a way out? With this clear parallel, Dimitry puts the debate in a new context.

“What solution do we offer those rightfully feeling unfit to go on living?”
