etoy’s MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS (a white cargo container at the entrance to ARCO pavilion 14) is where the art group etoy calls and reactivates a dead pioneer of the information age: Timothy Leary. He is the first MISSION ETERNITY TEST PILOT to enter the multiuser sarcophagus, and again the pioneer: other pilots will follow him. In Madrid, 8g of Leary’s mortal remains will be integrated into his updated TERMINUS. This plug-shaped capsule stores the ashes of the MISSION ETERNITY PILOT after cremation and links it to digital remains such as personal data, voice samples, images, a post-mortem activity plan and more.

The ceremony is public and accompanied by 4 etoy.AGENTS and a live act by TIM & PUMA MIMI from Zurich.
