Digital&Dead at South London Gallery [Curator]

Lippett, Samantha ORCID: (2018) Digital&Dead at South London Gallery [Curator]. [Show/Exhibition]


The event considered recent psychosocial shifts in our relationship with death following the growth of digital communication and social media. Inspired by the recent development of memorial websites and the ‘Facebook graveyard’, participants are invited to consider their own digital legacies through a demonstration of Rachel McRae's and Sarah Derat's Augmented Reality work Digital&Dead (2017), as well as a part-screening of the award winning Revisiting Genesis (2016) by artist Oreet Ashery. Has the algorithm made us eternal, or undead and what is the appropriate way to memorialise the deceased, post-body, in an age after the Internet?
