Memory and legacy in a digital world: in the online world that has become an inseparable part of our lives, we leave in the web our browsing and search history, photos, statuses, and more. This private imprint remains long after the final log-off, and in effect becomes an archive of our lives. The project wishes to make that content available to the next generations in an informed way.
The management of the digital identity will be conducted during our lives through a series of personal documenting accessories (watch, mirror, ring). The documented data will be distilled post-mortem by algorithms and artificial intelligence, and will serve as a smart memorial by use of a designated projector that will screen photos, sounds, and videos. This accessibility will allow us to remember the deceased and experience his digital identity, and in a way, keep his spirit alive.
