More InformationShow full item record
The living and the dead are currently separated from each other within our American cities. This divide has pushed society to disassociate the living and the dead, making them appear as separate entities. This creates a sense of fear amongst the living. We fear the dead, but cherish the memories and moments we shared when they were alive. This project will serve as a medium between the living and the dead to communicate through memories and moments in time. It will provide and an opportunity for sharing these special moments amongst family , friends, community and more to let your “voice be heard.” The thesis research will provide a new way to celebrate the dead, through the use of technology. The research will explore how space can influence emotions as well as how it can be a shelter of comfort. The design will serve to bring awareness to the idea of death, and become a example to reproduce this concept, in world of ever expanding technological capabilities.
