Infinity Burial Suit , 2008-ongoing
Jae Rhim Lee’s design for a customized cotton burial suit is an alternative to current funerary options such as cremation and casket burial. The suit contains a built-in mix of proprietary materials and mycelia (fungal threads) that fruit into mushrooms. This “biomix” absorbs and eliminates toxins that are emitted from the body into the soil and aids in decomposition.
