Dead Mail Memorial is centered around the idea of permanence and memory within the internet, as it evokes the individual experience contained in forgotten emails. Email addresses that are abandoned or belonged to persons who have died are eventually completely sealed themselves. They are spaces that contain the history of an individual and their relationships with others. Dead Mail Memorial exists to keep and to show email addresses that have been closed. Like physical memorials that serve as reminders of people and events, this attempts to recall the place that once contained one's daily internet communications. Place is represented by the email because within the complexities of the computer is one's constant pattern of communication. Death is virtual too in this space, appealing to the idea that it is not the end, that nothing ends with this “death.” Memory continues to exist, and it does so in a space that is neither digital nor physical, but spiritual.
