Digital Death

Let Me Haunt You

As a research intern at Microsoft Research Labs (2013) I collaborated with the Socio-Digital Systems research group to construct a series of playful design probes that aimed to problematise ambient communication within home automation systems through techno-spirituality. This project was called ‘Let me haunt you?’ and consisted of a digital planchette that you could send text messages to with any question that you wanted answered. Within a few minutes you would receive your response.
