"Post Mortem" by Jannis Kilian Kreft / CYNETART-Award 2010
As soon as you interact with "Post Mortem" you are virtually dead.
You experience what happens to your body within the first 14 days after death when exposed in a warm and humid climate where flies have access to your remains. All displayed in a scientifically realistic way.
You discover how an entire population of flies evolves dynamically from eggs to larva to pupa to fly ,while your virtually augmented body slowly decays - all generated in realtime.
If the table is empty there are no flies! The population evolves alongside the virtually dead and it follows intelligent flocking behaviours and reacts to peoples movements. Up to 8 arms can be placed anywhere on the table...
A bio-scientific transience metaphor.
