xHumed: Bring Back the Dead, with Mary Shelley

Making their first appearance at SXSWi, internationally renowned and long dead authors, H.G. Wells and Mary Shelley, lead us through the incredible journey of being xHumed.
Brought back to life for unique events in London and Birmingham, England, the xHumed are a collective of Speakers-in-a-Box who imparted Dead Good Thinking at NESTA’s FutureFest and the Library of Birmingham.
The process of bringing back the dead was sometimes painful, but made possible through partnership with cultural and media archive organisations including the Library of Birmingham, Oxford University, BBC and others.
If we can archive and store our personal data, media, DNA and brain patterns, the question of whether we can bring back the dead is almost redundant. The right question is should we?
Project producers Samara and Jason Jones-Hall will join Wells, Shelley and other xHumed guests to reveal both the contemporary relevance of these Dead Good Thinkers and the ripple effect of resurrection.
