The following is a list of all entries from the death category.

So It Goes.

This is a companion piece to “Examination.” The title comes, of course, from Kurt Vonnegut. The first piece dealt with medical research in the realm of patient interaction and this one concerns the grave-mining that has been done since time immemorial in the name of medicine.



There’s something to be said about achieving immortality through one’s work, but it’s been pretty difficult to do so through one’s materials – until now. Carbon Copies makes pencils out of human cremains – one person supplies enough ash to produce 240 pencils. Your dead body could produce a great work of art, literally. This is both greatly awesome and extremely creepy (and I say this as someone who reads about death a great deal and has fantasized about allowing my remains to be used as a crash test dummy).

Another interesting form of reincarnation from the same designer: The human bird feeder
