– modeling, the basic tools, subdivision surfaces
–...Read More »

Experimental Communication - Ryan Jordan, Jonathan Kemp & John Bowers

Recent studies have shown that the electrical resistance in soil above a buried carcass has a different electrical resistivity to that of near by soil due to the decomposition of bodily tissue. The body leaves a “real”, quantifiable electrical trace when it is dead.

Following this idea that traces of...Read More »
