Abstract [en]

We live in a time where ”the digital graveyard” is starting to overgrow, namely all the inactive digital information that is left behind by people passing away. In april this year Google is one of the first companies to address this issue with their new afterlife service ”Google death manager”. I intend to use the process of this service as an input source for my project and investigate how it can be visualized and translated into an architectural experience.

Abstract [sv]

Vi lever i en tid där "den digitala kyrkogården" expanderar som aldrig förr, nämligen alla den inaktiva digitala information som är kvar efter människor som avlider. I april i år är Google ett av de första företagen att ta itu med denna fråga med sin nya tjänst "Google death manager". Jag tänker använda processen i denna tjänst som en ingångskälla för mitt projekt och undersöka hur den kan visualiseras och översättas till en arkitektonisk upplevelse.
