Since 1979, when David Greenberger first encountered the residents of Boston’s Duplex Nursing Home (where he was the Activities Director), he has been illustrating the axiom, “when you get older everything will be different,” in a variety of ways. Posing evocative questions such as “Which do you prefer, coffee or meat?” and “How close can you get to a penguin?” to the nursing home residents, Greenberger recorded their free-ranging responses and began publishing them in a ‘zine entitled, The Duplex Planet. Eventually the ‘zine spawned a book of the same name, a Duplex Planet comic series (Fantagraphics), a card set (Kitchen Sink), a CD (East Side Digital), video (Gravita International) and a theatrical work entitled 1001 Real Apes.
