The Resting Place
Immortality is going to be achieved in the future. Conscious minds are preserved and transmitted in digital forms. Therefore, the ritual practices around death will be transformed.
Cemeteries hereafter would become a literal resting place–where future humans pause their lives either voluntarily or prompted to. Others would be able to visit the site, retrace the memories, and interact with the bodiless consciousness via particular interfaces.
The Resting Place is a kinetic installation envisaging the future scenario of such involvement among “the dead”, “the mourners”, and “the burial site” on the premise that biological mortality is overcome.
