    Cryonics – the process of freezing a human body after death in the hope that scientific advances might one day restore life. Fifty years after the concept’s birth, photographer Murray Ballard embarked on an extensive photographic investigation of the practice. Join Murray as he reveals the fascinating, obscure world and partake in a Q&A with him, ethicist, Arianne Shahvisi and neuroscientist, Alessandro Colasanti.
