Advice for the Living is a social experiment, public intervention and video art project created by John Loerchner & Laura Mendes, Co-Directors of Labspace Studio. The project explores the elusive and interrelated themes of wisdom, knowledge, and the ongoing search for happiness.

From July 15 – 28, 2013, Advice for the Living will play on the network of Pattison Onestop’s TTC subway platform screens in over 60 stations on more than 300 screens across Toronto.
