Final Status

www.finalstatus.co.uk

Final Status was an interactive digital art installation that I created in the summer of 2013. There are now over 30 million Facebook profiles of the deceased (Huffington Post, 2012). Some of these profiles are made into memorial pages, some are deactivated by family who have access to the deceased login details, but many remain untouched and still active to friends and the public (depending on privacy settings).

I created Final Status to highlight the existence of such profiles, the concept that although a person is no longer with us, everything they have ever shared on social networks still exists on the internet up until that very last thing they posted. Their last final status no matter how trivial, positive or negative it may have been, becomes a poignant statement existing indefinitely in a public space for many to see.

If you had a choice, what would you want your final status to be?
