Beyond the Body

candles bodyEvery day, we generate data about our daily lives. What happens when that data lives beyond us? With big data, social media, and shifting social concepts of “a good death” converging to create a digital afterlife, we explore the technology that is driving the transformation of the ways we die - and the way we are mourned. 

The first panel, “The Mind-Data Connection,” explores the emerging knowledge of how technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence influence our minds, personalities, and behaviors. From there, “Dying Tomorrow” takes a look at the past and future of mourning, and how we might interact with the digital ghosts our loved ones leave behind. Dance performances, from Malika Fankha and KineTech Arts, bringing us back to the physical, offering insights through performances examining the conflict between machines and bodies.

Join us for an evening of performances and discussions about bodies, data, and machines with experts from academia, industry, dance, and research as we imagine new futures for loss and grieving.
