This is a space open to the public, filled with concrete cubes of varying heights, symbolizing different life lengths. Each cube is engraved with a QR code. People can scan them to get some unexpected information. It may be a paragraph of text, a picture, or a story, but they are all related to death. Here the relationship between the living and the dead will be re-established.


"The most surprising impression is the appearance of personal imprints, such as names or numbers that can evoke memories, as a representative medium or a way to express sadness." In the current digital age, the deceased Various information can be uploaded to the terminal. People can retrieve information about the deceased by touching the name on the screen. This information may be slowly forgotten by people, but it is converted into data and stays here forever. Traditional tombstones only provide two functions, one is to record limited information (name, date of birth and death, etc.) of the deceased, and the other is to provide a memorial place for the living. The occupation of land by tombstones will be a serious problem in the future. After we have solved the recording of the deceased's information with a new method, should there be a new tombstone form to replace the traditional tombstone?
