'liberation from life = the ultimate roller coaster'

 "The rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death... Celebrating the limits of the human body but also the liberation from the horizontal life, this ‘kinetic sculpture’ is in fact the ultimate roller coaster."

-julijonas urbonas has designed the "euthanasia coaster," a roller coaster designed to enable assisted suicide. in the accompanying vidclip he says that unlike our sterilized understanding of euthanasia, his device "reintroduces ritual and joy to the modern understanding of death."

i have no idea if he's kidding or not.
