Along the Trail is a beautiful blend of storytelling and data visualization, all based on information you’ve shared through social media. This peaceful environment facilitates reflection and reliving memories, which can be especially powerful for those coping with loss or painful life experiences.
Along the Trail invites you to take a walk around landscapes generated from the data you left on social medias platforms. Exploring these landscapes helps you rediscover past events and forgotten memories stored in remote data centers.
Connecting to your Facebook account, Along the Trail retrieves personal informations such as posts, likes, events and messages. This information is used as the raw material of a collection of landscapes created to represent different aspects of your digital self. Each environment is made of bright elements, avatars of data extracts that can be accessed and read. A simple system of gaze-and-go waypoint enables navigation inside and between these environments, and leaves the time to contemplate and observe one’s surroundings.
