The Memorial app is a story about you, for those you love. An interactive autobiography/narrative and a message that is very personal and valuable, that can reach out to those who live on after your passing.
The Memorial app is divided into four main themes: movies, text, images and sound. As a designer/user of this app you can, together with a crisis broker, build stories for your loved ones. It can be divided into, for example, spouse/children/friends. You can also hand scan photos into the app, place and build parts of the text and insert audio files.

In this app, there is included up to four meetings and eight hours with a crisis broker, which helps to record and edit the material, so that it is positioned correctly and safely.
The material is stored in a secure database for 50 years, so the family can always turn on and receive a new, comprehensive version of The Memorial app.
Recorded for posterityThere are always a lot left unsaid when a loved one leaves us. Ones relations might not be old enough to fully understand what you are trying to say, or simply not mature enough to hear it.
The Memorial app can be used to tell your story, when you want it, to whom you want it. Your granddaughter could receive your advice upon her 18th birthday.
