This project speculates a company which provides digital-suicide support services to people who choose to opt out the internet world. The speculation starts with the question: is it possible for individuals to withdraw from the internet today? The perpetual connectivity of the internet has entrapped us in a high-res panopticon. At the same time, due to the physical power structure that has been embedded in our digital world, we, as individuals, have limited access to even our personal data. 

The freedom offered by the internet has become the very antithesis of its own. Living in such post-internet society, Is it possible to decouple the digital and physical self? Can we ever be free from our data defined cyber shadow? The project intends to dissect contemporary power structures of data usage, data transparency, data accessibility, and data democratization under the overbearing absurdity of our digital status quo.
