Data Afterlife is an installation made during Post Social Media Club Recidency in Malmö, confronting the powers that control not only the data of those living, posting, streaming, and sharing on social media today, but also those users who have left behind their mortal bonds but whose profiles remain.

By relating the opaque tech corporations that have supremacy over our data to the centralized religious institutions who claim ownership over the souls of their followers, the project interrogates how these tech institutions have made data they control a sacred aspect of our social existence–and a divine reflection of the way we see ourselves.
