Memorialization Practices
Abstract:When someone close to us passes away, many of us seek to hold on to the memories, stories and objects that remind us of the departed. With a few notable exceptions, little research has been done into the role of material and tangible reminders in technologically mediated memorialization practices. In this work, we describe a speculative prototype design called Pensieve Box, which we employ as part of a cultural probe to explore how individuals might incorporate technology into their memorialization practices. We conducted an interview study with individuals who recently lost a loved one to investigate how a tangible interactive technology might be used within the context of personal memorialization and identified several themes around these practices that can inform future designs.
