Death can be an excellent career move. Even more so in an age where the combination of mortality and technology has led to the opening up of new frontiers in the exploitation of the dead. When the original ceases to exist, yet can be seen to live on in popular culture, the possibility of an extended immortality can be implicitly evoked. There are many examples of digital manipulations through which the deceased personality appears to us in new contexts, as though they are still alive today.
