For anthropologists, funeral rituals are one of the foundations for the transition to civilization. The current recognition in the contemporary world of an agnostic philosophy allows the emergence of a new type of rites and ceremonies.
Si-Memoria is an experience of individual, alternative or / and supplementary funerary ritual that is based on the anticipation of your own death. The tool allows to transmit a post-mortem message, localized, thus creating for a close person, a place where he could come to gather intimate informations.
The instructions for accessibility to the message are written on two cards, indissociable, themselves generated graphically by their contents (GPS coordinates and dates).
The transmitted message is realized in virtual reality. In order to be able to view its content, as with any ritual, many steps are necessary.
I summarized these steps through a video.
During the presentation of this project, visitors also watched this video. If they wished, they could immerse themselves in the "white box", out of sight, equipped with a smartphone and a Cardboard to access the content of the virtual reality message suggested in the video.
