    Beyond Me

    "Death is the most democratic event in human societies: it strikes the rich and the poor, men and women, people of all races and beliefs." - Cristiano Maciel and Vinicius Carvalho Pereira, eds., Digital Legacy and Interaction: Post-Mortem Issues Beyond Me is a Web platform that allows people to curate personalized messages within an immersive WebVR landscape for loved ones to visit. I chose to realize this prototype in WebVR to provide a deeper, emotional engagement through the sharing of voice messages, photos and other digital media. To demonstrate the application, I have used the framework to create a memory archive for my own brother. The existing framework can be customized for any individual to support their own unique memories.
