‘I and I’ is a VR experience.
It was shown in May 2022 during Baker McKenzie's flagship event ‘A Bling New World’ and then followed by an exhibition ‘Uhrformen’ at the Sarabande Foundation.
Marta Klara presented a possible 3D environment for a funeral where she digitally buried her old avatar.
The artist undertook an experiment of digital mummification as a new path of preservation of human legacy.
