Having had many talks with families recently about the end of life phenomenon of terminal delirium or terminal restlessness, I wondered how this concept had been depicted visually in art. As with other gallery themes we've done on pain, the last breath and afterlife, I've scoured the Internet in search of interesting art.
It is always difficult to express a subjective experience visually.
Although all these works are entitled "Restless" adding in the idea of terminal restlessness would add another layer to the the visual experience. I couldn't, however, find any art work with the title "Terminal Restlessness"...perhaps one of our readers could be the first!
