Scripting death, through a forest... Choi, Gina


Theoretically the legislation of Medical Assistance in Dying, hereafter MAiD, ensures all Canadians can exercise their right to die. In reality, the new politics around death provides nothing remotely resembling autonomy in dying in either the procedural or personal sense. Scripting death proposes autonomous architecture. Through assisted dying, it renders death as an anticipated event. When one actively makes death instead of let die, dying becomes a liberating process of choice and control.
