Abstract

This position paper highlights the less supported letting go aspect of the experience of loss and positions it within the HCI work on death and dying. It also argues for the value of embracing nonattachment and accepting impermanence and illustrate this with design exemplars piloted with 4 participants in Japan. Findings emphasize the value of the aesthetic, embodied experience to support the celebration of non-attachment.
