Infographic: Where Do People Live The Longest?

When the grim reaper comes for you has a lot to do with where you're born.

Everyone dies, but depending on which country you live in, you could die significantly sooner compared with people born in other countries. That's the takeaway from this simple but striking infographic by Omani designer Marcelo Duhalde. Looking something like the open pages of the Big Book Of Death, Duhalde's "Life Expectancy At Birth" will tell you the statistical likelihood (if not Vegas odds on when) you're going to go belly up, depending upon where you live.

Mumukshu Bhawan: India’s ‘Hotel of Death’

Mumukshu Bhawan: India’s ‘Hotel of Death’

The gateway to salvation, if you’ve been looking for it, is in India’s northern Uttar Pradesh state, in the holy city of Varanasi. Dying here, according to Hindu belief, is supposed to ‘break the cycle of death and rebirth. Once one dies in Varanasi, he or she is never reborn, and thus attains salvation.’.

Hotels and lodgings have crowded the city, with one such place called Mumukshu Bhawan (Home of the Ailing), which was established in 1920. This is where the elderly come to settle, and ultimately die.

‘More than 300 people stay in Mumukshu and most of them are above 60’, says the manager, Manish Pandey. ‘In Varanasi death is not mourned but considered a blessing’.

Catacomb Saints: photos by Paul Koudounaris

Catacomb Saints: photos by Paul Koudounaris

When you think of skeletons, the last thing that might come to mind would be ‘bling-bling’. But feast your eyes on this!
In the 1578, the remains of many Christian martyrs were discovered in underground tombs under Rome. They were excavated and transported to different Catholic churches, supposedly to replace holy relics that were destroyed during the Protestant Reformation. The skeletons were then outfitted with all the gold a corpse could ask for.

This display of wealth was a reminder of the treasures one could earn in the afterlife.

Enter photographer Paul Koudounaris; he specializes in taking photographs of mummies, skeletal reliquaries, and other aspects of the dead. He managed to gain access to the institutions that hold these relics and took their photographs for the first time in history. He compiled the photos in a book called Heavenly Bodies.

In 1578 word spread of the discovery in Rome of a network of underground tombs containing the remains of thousands of early Christian martyrs. Many skeletons of these supposed saints were soon removed from their resting place and sent to Catholic churches in Europe to replace holy relics that were destroyed during the Protestant Reformation. Once in place the skeletons were then carefully reassembled and enshrined in costumes, wigs, jewels, crowns, gold lace, and armor as a physical reminder of the heavenly treasures that awaited in the afterlife.

Over the past few years photographer Paul Koudounaris who specializes in the photography of skeletal reliquaries, mummies and other aspects of death, managed to gain unprecendented access to various religious institutions to photograph many of these beautifully macabre shrines for the first time in history. The photos have been collected into a book titled Heavenly Bodies released by Thames & Hudson early next month. (via Hyperallergic)

These Clothes Will Let You Decompose In Stylish Grace

Fashion is an act of self–expression, a reflection of life. But the dead have no fashion. They just wear clothes.

It is this disconnect between fashion and clothing, the living and the dead that designer Pia Interlandi examines in her Garments for the Grave. More than just an art project, Interlandi's work aims to clothe the dead in garments that preserve the dignity of the deceased and those who mourn them, without making a mockery of the fashions they wore in life.

Interlandi's work on Garments for the Dead started in 2009. Upon the death of her grandfather, Interlandi was tasked with dressing his corpse in a suit picked out by her grandmother. While doing so, Interlandi was struck by the haphazardness with which the clothing he would wear to the grave had been chosen.

"Momentous occasions of ritual and ceremony usually call for particular clothing, such as a wedding dress, which has been sewn with great care." Intelandi tells me. "Yet the suit chosen for my grandfather, and the last garment he would ever wear, was done without much thought." In fact, not only was it difficult for her to put on her grandfather, the suit didn't even fit thanks to her grandfather's long illness. Interlandi began wondering if there was a more suitable way to clothe the dead.

The suit chosen for my grandfather, and the last garment he would ever wear, was done without much thought.

There are many ways in which an item of clothing worn in life is not suited for death. For one thing, clothing is made to be put on autonomously: a shirt that you can effortlessly shrug into and button up while you're alive can be incredibly difficult to dress a corpse with. "The body becomes stiffer in the joints and unexpectedly heavy," says Interland. "Because of this, dressing a dead body basically requires a new way of dressing someone, where you turn their garments upside down."

There is also the matter of materials. Fibers and fabrics are chosen for practical qualities like longevity and expense. In the Western world, this ends up meaning that a lot of what we bury our dead in is synthetic. These materials can outlast a corpse, and even worse, actually prevent a body from decomposing naturally. "Dress a corpse in nylon tights or stockings, and they will constrict around the waist and act as pressure tights around the legs," says Interlandi. "The result is that when deterioration sets in the bacteria can't easily get down the legs or around the torso, resulting in the legs mummifying while the upper body rots normally."

On average, a simple garment costs around $80.

These are the considerations that have informed the design of Interlandi's designs. Her simple but dignified burial robes are made of all–natural fabrics such as calico, cotton, silk, or lace, and are designed so that a family member of funeral director can easily dress the deceased. First, the garment is placed in a casket, the body is laid on top of it, and the partially pinned garment is then flipped over the front of the corpse in just a few easy motions, with ties then being used to secure the garment. Best of all, they are affordable: On average, a simple garment costs around $80.

Although Interlandi provides one–size–fits–all garments to clients as part of her work with the Clandon Wood natural burial reserve in Surrey, she has also provided garments tailored to the needs of individuals, such as a burial garment sewn from the sheets that the deceased slept in along with their partner for many years. She has also made robes designed for specific faiths and cultures, as well as garments for people of all sizes and ages. "I have thankfully not made garments for babies or children yet, but there is a sad inevitability of working in this area that means I probably will have to one day," the artist says.

Perhaps there is something to all of this. Dressing someone in death in the same clothes they wore in life seems like a morbid mockery of both. You only die once; perhaps, like your wedding day, the occasion deserves an outfit of its own. You can see more of Interlandi's work at her official website by clicking here.

Infographic: A Map That Compares Global Birth And Death Rates At A Glance

A word cloud is reimagined as a new way of looking at birth and mortality across the globe.

We post a lot of infographics, but we pass on even more of them. A common shortcoming of global maps is fairly simple: They favor the most developed parts of the world. Even a very scientific map might make it appear that meteors mostly hit the U.S. when, in reality, it’s far more likely that we’ve simply dug up more meteors here because we’ve dug up much of this country in the last 100 years.

But this Birth & Death Rate World Map, that appears to be by Taipei’s Stark Design, works almost in the opposite way. Each country is typed out on a world map, and the size of that type is dictated by birth rate (white) and death rate (red). Its very foundational approach challenges xenocentrism. You can’t focus on the most powerful parts of the world because, at least in the case of the U.S., they simply cease to exist. Instead, you’re left with the unavoidable truth staring you right in the face: The continent of Africa has the most births and deaths per capita.

I will say, the graphic isn’t perfect. Its font size scheme--which depicts a mathematical ratio of births to deaths for each country--doesn’t seem to play out perceptually. Namely, it’s hard to get a feel for what that ratio actually is. I wonder if simply making two graphs--one showing births, one showing deaths--would have been a better approach.

Even still, it’s an imaginative play on the tired trope of word clouds. And it’s a clever way to get our eyes exploring parts of the map beyond our own borders.

20 Beautiful Concepts Depicting Death and Dying

Death. That’s a very scary word.

Nobody want’s to die. If they do, they’re free to check out at any point and time. Now I’m not advocating suicide, I’m simply stating the fact that everybody wants to live. If life was so awful, this entire planet wouldn’t have a single human on it.

Life is fun. Life is great. Life is well… life. Nobody knows for sure what we’re doing on this tiny rocks that’s floating in space. We all have different theories and opinions, however not a single person on this planet knows exactly why we are here and what we are supposed to do.

I think everybody has to make their own path and answer for the mistakes they’ve made. Life is like minesweeper. When you start out you have no information on what’s best to do and where to start. You just have to go, a.k.a. start clicking. If you click in the right spot, you might create better options and opportunities for yourself.

Some people are lucky while others are not so lucky. There will be moments in your life when you’re loaded with many options and openings. Other times, you will have to stop, look around, and deeply think before you make your next move.

Life isn’t always fair. If it was, there wouldn’t be people dying of hunger every day. Some people are unlucky and no matter how well they plan or how smart they are they will be in an impossible position. All you can do is move forward and hope you make the right choices.

The only difference between life and minesweeper, is that when you make a mistake in minesweeper, it’s over. When you make a mistake in life, it changes the way you play. Unless of course your life is as a minesweeper, then a mistake is the end in either case…

I’m sorry if that was a geeky analogy, however I think it makes sense.

In the end Death is inevitable. He catches everybody. The only thing you can do is to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every single moment of it.

Today we collected well thought out illustrations, artworks, and images portraying death. I’m not trying to get you “inspired” about death. I simply thought it would be a great idea to take a look at creative concepts and ideas that symbolize death. I ended up finding great examples, which had to be shared with others. Enjoy!

Life and Death According to Web Designers [Infographic]

Web designers are curious and creative. Many judgemental sideline fans usually think that sitting all day in front of the computer isn’t hard work. What they don’t understand is that while the body may note move too much, a web designer’s brain is moving faster than the speed of light. Thinking, planning, and trying to rank hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of different tasks isn’t easy.

The following infographic is for all the hard-working web designers out there. Apart from being very entertaining, it contains some amusing points about the behaviour and psychology of web designers. Enjoy!
