DIGITAL LEGACY — I WISH I COULD DIE

The design of the project is based on the topic of digital legacy, using the expression of virtual space to visualize the accumulation of digital legacy and the monitory by surveillance capitalism, challenging how to translate people’s behaviour on the internet into spatial forms. It also discusses personal data that we are not usually aware of and the issue of its privacy and the relationship between controlling and being controlled. I liken the attraction of the internet to people’s dependence on sugar, imagining a virtual sugar world after death using my own behaviour in the digital world as an example. Different types of spaces and materials are used to express the privacy and publicness and traceability of information. The project as a whole visually maps the online world with a gorgeous and colourful candy world, expressing the digital hegemony of surveillance capitalism and the beautiful emptiness behind the information explosion. It invites people to think about their digital legacy and the existence of individuals in both the virtual and physical worlds.
