The book is an observation on death announcements in social media. It examines forms of mourning in social media with a focus on death announcements that are posted on the social network services Instagram and Facebook.
The project opens up a discussion about immortality, privacy after death, digital heritage and property and the future of memory. For this, we recreated the images of death announcement posts with abstract sketches and listed related hashtags of every entry to eventually gather them in a book.
Our artistic survey aims to trigger a broad discussion of how we talk about death in social media.
