Marking of the graves

Stine Gotved, researcher at ITU, has submitted a paper for the upcoming 2014 AoIR conference in October. A shorter version of the initial paper was selected for a special issue of Information, Communication and Society.

The paper itself revolves around the marking of graves with QR codes – a global phenomenon that adds a new digital aspect to memorials. Interestingly, as Stine Gotved writes, this forces us to challenge our understanding of physical versus digital and public versus private.

Stine is part of the Death Online Research Network, where you find more information on the subject http://deathonlineresearch.net/sample-page/
