The Physical Impossibility of Death in the mind of Someone living.
Damien Hirst, 1991
It’s kind of a play on a favourite reposte of mine;
Q. ” How will you know when you’re dead”?
A. ” You look in a mirror and there’s no reflection”
And yes, it’s seriously weird.. maybe more weird even than the sharkinatank because it engages with the viewer alongside.
That is seriously weird ! I’ve heard of people being injured whilst shopping at the sales but never actually losing their head :))
