Above the Cloud - Archaeology of Social Networks 

Created by Boris Meister at ECALAbove the Cloud is an atlas about social networks archeology, death and digital marks left in distress on the internet. Boris attempts to present the complex subject and, above all, explain it by creating an object – book, both in its structure, images and layout.

Over 6 million accounts on Facebook belong to dead people, what Boris refers to as “Ghosts” in the book. Semi-living digital beings that still interact with their “friends” by being tagged in photos or referenced, their profile is regularly updated.
