The farvel project is completed.

With farvel, Jennifer Beitel, Markus Traber and Lilli Berger have spent two years developing virtual 3D memory spaces and staging various events in Virtual Space. The team conducted research during the funding period up to and including September 2022 with the help of start-up grants from the Berlin University of the Arts and the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf. Two companies emerged from the research results and start-up experiences:

Markus Traber and Jennifer Beitel with www.ternaty.com

Lilli Berger with www.erinnerungs-raum.de

P.S. All rooms, including Mandy's memory room, will continue to be available under farvel.space and will be jointly managed by us.

I have been a funeral director for 10 years and no one in my family has ever died - until 2020 during the lockdown when my grandfather passed away and I was not allowed to arrange a funeral for my family.

As a Creative Technologist, I deal with audio-visual experiences. When my father tore his Achilles tendon, he couldn't properly participate in his sister's funeral ceremony.

I am a Creative Technologist and have done research in the area of digital creative grief work. Until just before the pandemic, digital engagement with this topic was dismissed as immoral.

We want to promote new cultures of remembrance in order to meet the diverse needs of our time. That is why we are developing virtual places of farewell, remembrance and exchange.

I was born on the streets of Romania and lost my mom a short time later in a car accident. My sister and I could be saved and I was allowed to move to Jennifer and her boyfriend in Berlin.

Since then, as a Feelgood Manager, I bring a smile to everyone's face and comfort when someone is sad.

Our Impulse

Mourning does not always have to be silent. Parting is vivid - just like us. And because we surround ourselves with digital content every day, we want to bring grief into the virtual space. Our motivation is to enable a unique exchange about the life of a loved one while creating new memories with friends and family. 

We bring people together in difficult times. To make this work, access to our rooms is easy and barrier-free. At the same time, protecting your privacy is important to us. That's why we collect as little data as possible and transparently show what it is used for.

Let's give farewell, memory and exchange a virtual place.
