Datagården

Final resting place for your loved ones, on real teletext.

What would your obituary look like if internet would decide? Datagården explores this question with obituaries based on real information from the internet. It also has fictional information in order to speculate about future potentials, for when it’s time for you to go.

Datagården works on any television, using Text-tv and a normal remote control. Text-tv is one of the largest mass media of Sweden, with two million viewers everyday. Its short and reliable information presents a refreshing alternative to the spam freedom of the www.

Datagården is most likely the first installation in the world to use a custom teletext signal. It features video input, video feedback and Twitter-feeds along with custom-made graphics/text/software and C64-music. Made by Raquel Meyers, Possan and Goto80. Interface developed by Peter Kwan. 3D-printed teletext graphics made with the help of Rickard Dahlstrand.

The intro to Clannad After Story converted into shift-JIS ASCII. Seems to use something similar to the structure-based conversion of this.
