Ocean Tomb / Tomb

Ocean Tomb
Ocean Tomb

Ocean Tomb is made of many coffins of one family. Each coffin can find other family members’ coffin through GPS trackers and boosters, linking up to form a genealogy tomb. With the information of individual history in each coffin, the whole tomb can tell a long history story of a family. In this situation, people can know the story of their family and family members and the location of the tomb. Ocean tomb provides a fixed home to the soul of the dead person, and a opportunity for living people to cherish the memory of them.
