Seppukoo.com is a social website which “liberates the digital body” by deactivating one’s Facebook profile and shaping a social experience out of it. It is meant to reflect seppuku, an ancient practice in Japan in which a samurai warrior kills himself to restore their honor.
Created by ”Linking the Invisible“, a group of European media artists (Guy McMusker, Clemente Pestelli and Gionatan Quintini), whom explore the invisible relationships between the “infosphere, neural synapsis, and real life.” In one of their projects, they have created the quintessential ‘anti-social networking’ social website. Their website capitalizes on a notable trend, namely the desire to disconnect as a way to get things done and get back to the way life used to be – before social media became so integrated into one’s identity, social life, and to escape the encroaching corporate media interests that currently drive much of the online world.
