Vestige - your digital legacy

The French word „ vestige“ is roughly synonymous with the English terms „relict“ and „remains“. In previous and current generations alike, property and memories are simply passed on the appropriate beneficiaries, due to a last will. However in recent times an unprecedented issue has arisen and it demands our attention: the digital world. What happens with our digital belongings and what is to become of our „ digital self“? Do we really want to live on in the digital world even when we cease to exist in the real one? How can the relatives of the deceased gain access to the necessary accounts and documents if they don't have the respective passwords? These questions were the starting point for the development of Vestige, a legacy concept for digital issues. The user interface of the Vestige-program was elaborated, furthermore the homepage and a explanation movie.
