An exhibit asks and explores answers to the question - how much of us lives on online when we die?

The recently launched exhibit LIFELOGGING investigates the ways in which we turn our lives into data via trackers and tallies, and asks, with regard to life-after-death of data itself, “where do we go from here?” In addition to the multimedia exhibit, the ongoing project at Trinity College Dublin's Science Gallery Dublin hosts cross-disciplinary research to explore how we digitally quantify beauty, the body, and “everything from heartbeats to heartbreak.”

Artist and art director Karl Toomey contributed several pieces to the gallery show, including a tombstone with the data-fiable accomplishments of fictitious character @kurtmarkoneill carved into it.
