Life Support Machines That Keep Each Other Alive

Installation artist and mad scientist Revital Cohen came up with a rather kooky idea for her latest work entitled The Immortal-connect a bunch of life support machines together so that they will keep each other alive ad infinitum.

Why, you may ask, would she do such a thing? "The Immortal investigates human dependence on electronics, the desire to make machines replicate organisms and our perception of anatomy as reflected by biomedical engineering."

You can see a video of the machines in action at the Beautiful/Decay link below. I wonder how much her HMO is charging her to use this array of machines?

I read somewhere that these are all used machines that were to be discarded. Now, if this art project were to include the stories behind each machine, that would be extra neat!
