Designed Death: The Future of Data Personality


As the clock ticks each of us will reach the end, death. But even when you encounter physical death, all your various your data would still remain on the internet, as if you still exist. Getting a birthday notification for a departed is one example. In this day and age, we should be thinking about death other than its physical form.
In the NHK program, Day of Reunion: If You Could Meet the Departed, we used the person’s data with CG to resurrect the person who would reunite with family.
Because death is a certainty for everyone, we should proactively design our death while we are alive in order to depart this world civilly and inform future generations. Death should not be thought as an end but rather a stepping stone as you move forward into the future.
