Project Outline

During this semester, we will be analyzing common practices in mourning the dead in different cultures, through different time periods. This research will be used towards developing a new way to mourn the dead to accommodate different causes of death in a sustainable way. This redesign of mourning will be a response to a shift in digital personal content and modern technology.

The goal of this project is to create a system and/or service that can represent the life of a loved on in a satisfactory, whole, and meaningful manner. This will be a means to facilitate the grieving process in a healthy way.
