Living on after death is much easier these days thanks to the slew of online profiles pulsating on the Internet; yet the LIFELOGGING exhibit addresses this concept of a digital life (or even death) in a more exploratory way. It bridges the gap between the physical world and the digital one in very interesting ways.

For instance, a LIFELOGGING piece by artist and art director Karl Toomey involved "a tombstone with the data-fiable accomplishments of fictitious character @kurtmarkoneill carved into it," describes Psfk. Toomey elaborates on his feelings about a digital afterlife, "Likewise on an emotional level I’d like my family to be able to put my data to use somehow. Maybe deleting it could be the ultimate closure for them. Or maybe replaying the data could be comforting in the way old photos are."
