Come view the Sarco at the Venice Biennale.
Sarco is a futuristic-looking pod that promises users a quick and peaceful way to end their lives without the need to involve the medical profession. It works by flooding its sealed pod with nitrogen, an unregulated substance that’s easy to legally obtain.
As the oxygen level inside rapidly drops, users will feel slightly tipsy, before quickly falling into unconsciousness. Death follows within minutes. The unit is entirely mobile and can be towed to any location a user might want to die.
