A performance, an invitation, a request, a desire.
The last ratio from who is going to leave us. A video uploaded on youtube, a QRcode tattooed on the performer body, at the heart heigh, taking a picture of it with the smartphone. A message to all of us: “please do not bring me back to life and donate all my useful organs”. A biological will.
The link at the video is written on the skin of the one who aim for death.
We will find us in front of the necessity to make a choice, wrong in any case. The consequences of your choice will bring to two different ends.
The video is upload on the youtube channel -ad hoc created- that could host similar records in the hope that can be accepted like a real possibility as a biological will delivery and that it expands on a large scale.
QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode). A QR code consists of black modules (squared dots) arranged in a squared grid on a white background, which can be read by an imaging device (such as a camera, scanner, etc.).
