DR. TIMOTHY LEARY'S AFTER LIFE CEREMONY No. 2
Soundtrack by TIM & PUMA MIMI

Today the LEARY TERMINUS II, which was produced on February 14th in Madrid, was successfully inserted into the MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS.




Dr. Timothy Leary passed away at the age of 75 on May 31, 1996 in California. He qualified as a test-pilot for MISSION ETERNITY with his reputation as a pioneer of the information age and his last book "Design for Dying".

Leary left the art group etoy a massive body of personal digital footage (photos, video, text, sketches, research papers, etc.) and his mortal remains (ashes) for experiments. In a series of totally four performances his ashes are incorporated into art objects, so called LEARY TERMINUS (I-IV). Each TERMINUS is a bridge that links the physical and digital remains of MISSION ETERNITY PILOTS.

TODAY at exactly 19:35 the LEARY TERMINUS II, an updated TEST VERSION by Adrien Rovero and Augustin Scott de Martinville, was plugged into the left SARCOPHAGUS-WALL. The hybrid between sculpture, cargo-container, organizational art, archive, mortal-remains-storage-solution, is a digital memorial for up to one thousand PILOTS. The SARCOPHAGUS connects tangible and non-tangible existence - biomass and data - and is the moving "resting place" and access point after physical death and cremation.




The digital data of Thimothy Leary is stored in the ARCANUM CAPSULE. This digital portraits as well as the SARCOPHAGUS are designed to travel planet earth forever together with millions of other cargo containers and TCP/IP Particles on the Internet.

Integrated into the immersive display of the SARCOPHAGUS each TERMINUS assumes the role of a dead pixel. The mortal remains replace the light and the displayed information. A unique RFID tag, identifies and assigns each TERMINUS to its corresponding ARCANUM CAPSULE online. A status LED on each TERMINUS indicates visitor traffic, the back-up status and distribution factor of the digital ARCANUM CAPSULE. In case of risk of data loss the LED and a very minimal sound system generate attention and call for help.

The key to the long-term project MISSION ETERNITY is a DISTRIBUTED DATA-STORAGE based on millions of computers of internet users - so called MISSION ETERNITY ANGELS.

This is just the beginning of an infinite voyage. Leaving reality behind...

CEREMONIA N° 2 DE LA VIDA POST-MORTEM DEL DR. TIMOTHY LEARY
con actuación en directo de TIM & PUMA MIMI

Hoy el LEARY TERMINUS II, que fue producido el pasado 14 de Febrero en Madrid, será insertado en el MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS.

El Dr. Timothy Leary murió en California el 31 de mayo de 1996 a la edad de 75 años. Fue seleccionado como piloto de pruebas del MISSION ETERNITY por su reputación como pionero de la era de la información y por su conocido libro "Design Dying"

Leary dejó al colectivo de artistas etoy un cuerpo masivo de información digital (fotos, vídeos, textos, bocetos, sketches, artículos de investigación científica, etc...) y sus restos mortales (cenizas). A lo largo de una serie de cuatro performances las cenizas de Leary están siendo incorporadas a objetos artísticos, llamados LEARY TERMINUS (I-IV).

Este TERMINUS es un puente que une los restos físicos y digitales de los pilotos del MISSION ETERNITY.

El TERMINUS está conectado al SARCOPHAGUS. Este híbrido entre escultura, contenedor de carga, arte organizacional, archivo, almacén de restos mortales, es un homenaje multimedia a más de mil pilotos. El SARCOPHAGUS conecta la existencia tangible y la intangible (biomasa y datos). Es un lugar en movimiento para el "último descanso" que sirve como punto de acceso después de la muerte física y la cremación.

Los datos digitales de Thimothy Leary son almacenados en la ARCANUM CAPSULE. Este retrato digital junto con el SARCOPHAGUS están diseñados para viajar por el planeta Tierra por siempre junto con millones de otros contenedores de carga y partículas de TCP/IP en Internet.

Incorporado a la pantalla del SARCOPHAGUS cada TERMINUS asume el papel de un píxel muerto. Los restos mortales sustituyen a la luz y la información mostrada. Una única marca RFID, identifica y asigna cada TERMINUS a su correspondiente ARCANUM CASULE on line. Un LED en cada TERMINUS indica el status del tráfico de visitantes, del back-up y de la distribución del ARCANUM CAPSULE digital. En caso de riesgo de pérdida de datos el LED y un sistema de sonido minimal genera atención y pide ayuda.

La clave del proyecto MISSION ETERNITY a largo plazo es una unidad distribuida de almacenamiento de datos basada en millones de ordenadores de usuarios de Internet, también llamados MISSION ETERNITY ANGELS.

Conviértete en un ANGEL on line y ayuda a asegurar la vida digital post-mortem del Dr. Timothy Leary y otros pilotos que le seguirán en las próximas décadas: www.missioneternity.org

Este es tan sólo el comienzo hacia un viaje infinito. Deja atrás a la realidad...
