Beyond Mortality


Bich Tran


In the last 100 years, advances in medicine and technological development have been able to prolong the human lifespan exceedingly. If we are able to prolong our lives longer and longer… What happens if we can live forever? How would this transition between mortality and immortality look like?

Out of these questions, I propose to design the ritual between mortality and immortality.

The goal of the design is to make the moment of transformation visceral and reflect upon the consequences this shift would have on a personal and societal level.
