American-Israeli architect, designer, and professor Neri Oxman has created a series of 3D printed death masks, Via DeZeen

Neri Oxman and her Mediated Matter group at MIT Media Lab have created a series of colourful death masks that explore the transition between life and death.

Designed in collaboration with 3D-printing company Stratasys, the Vespers collection is made up of three series of five death masks.

The first series to be released is named Present. Conceptually, it is the second in the three series, and it aims to prompt discussion about the transition period between life and death.

The first collection – which is yet to be released – will look to the natural world, while the final instalment revolves around rebirth.
