Frederik Heyman’s ‘Virtual Embalmings’ Offer Curated Digital Memorials

by Andy SmithPosted on

Using 3D scanning, artist Frederik Heyman created “virtual embalmings,” in which digitally crafted memorials are curated by their subjects. In this series, created for the Nowness program “Define Beauty,” he “embalmed” fashion and entertainment figures Isabelle Huppert, Kim Peers and Michèle Lamy with their careful input.

“The following virtual memorials were curated by their subjects,” he says. “They were asked the question: ‘How do you want to be remembered in the future?’ These installations overcome time and space, in which physical presence is no longer relevant. A digital remembrance as a document for the future.”
