My mushroom burial suit: Jae Rhim Lee on TED.com

Posted by: Emily McManus

Here’s a powerful provocation from artist Jae Rhim Lee. Can we commit our bodies to a cleaner, greener Earth, even after death? Naturally — using a special burial suit seeded with pollution-gobbling mushrooms. Yes, this just might be the strangest TEDTalk you’ll ever see … (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2011, July 2011, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Duration: 7:30.)
