Explore this surreal lost property office where you will uncover stories in the most unlikely places.

As a society fixated on youth and agelessness, we tend to ignore an important question about ageing: what will it be like for me? Unclaimed, a new installation by The Liminal Space, puts forward new narratives about ageing. With the help of talking shoes, binoculars that let you see through someone else’s eyes and books that read to you, the often untold stories of what it’s like to grow old in the UK today are brought vividly to life.

Incredibly, one in three people in the UK today will reach their 100th birthday. As a nation we've never lived so long. Using leading research from University College London, data from the Centre for Ageing Better and interviews with hundreds of people from many backgrounds, Unclaimed explores the modern ageing experience, and raises questions about how society can tackle deepening inequalities in older age.
