Alex Olevitch introduced me to this project this afternoon.
The analysis associated behind why we value the objects we do is fully illustrated in this SOM Foundation project. What resonates as truly amazing, is the idea that upon death, what we value can be placed back into the circulation cycle that society upholds. Processions of the deceased travel through a process for their eventual re-introduction. Aside from incredible rendering and visual representation, the thought behind the project is incredible. Something only truly understood if you take a look at the founders words .
These are the types of projects we should compose once in awhile.
We got a chance to see this exhibition when visiting the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Definitely worth a look.
