A concept for my Mourning Rituals project.
This locket makes sure that you carry the deceased close to heart.
You can store memories, thoughts and feelings in an implicit way, by stroking the front of the design.
Inside the locket, a deep, black mass with small digital fireflies inside the design fly around and represent the memories, thoughts and feelings (these cannot be seen in the video).
This locket is part of a network, that consists out of people connected to the deceased. They also have a mourning locket, bracelet or watch. When somebody adds an activity, it gets send to all the designs in the network by making usw of light and warmth again.
