Join curator Samantha Lippett and artist duo Rachel McRae and Sarah Derat for an evening of discussion on dying in the digital age.

About

The event will consider 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 also invited to consider their own digital legacies through a demonstration of the duo’s recent 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?
