The Art of Darkness

The Necrocard

NecrocardIf you found a laminator to make yourself an Artistic License, here’s another amusing card you can put in your wallet.

Writer and performance artist Stewart Home decided to explore the relationship between sex and death by creating donor cards enabling the bearers to leave their body for sexual experimentation. His description of public reaction to the cards is interesting, and it brings up the deeper philosophical question: Is necrophilia still wrong if you’ve got the corpse’s specific consent?

Stewart copied the design of the NHS donor card to create his version. The design isn’t particularly attractive, so if you’re going to make your own you might want to experiment with the color and style.

I may make up a bunch of these as favors for my next Halloween party.
