IMMORTAL MIND STORY

β€œIn the next hundreds of years, the brain-computer interface technology will reach a higher level that it will be able to duplicate the Brain. The mind can be entirely separated from the body and live by itself. The body will then be kept in a personal body archive, waiting for the mind to be back again.”

While some individuals opt to upload their consciousness to the cloud for eternal life, we can help them to preserve their physical bodies in a body archive while uploading their consciousness to the cloud.

Bio

Yunyi Zhang is a fashion and accessory designer based in New York and Shanghai. Her work shows tension and freedom through the juxtaposition between soft materials and strong architectural structures. Materiality plays an essential role through the use of plant foam material, bio textiles, and dead stock yarns. Like building up soft armor that surrounds the body, she integrates new technology and unconventional materials with traditional techniques, such as crocheting around 3D printing structures. She sees her work as a comforting and immersive tactile experience with a visual tone of futuristic couture.
