You are more than your virtual identity. Join the world suicide social network.
Pass away. Leave your ID behind.
Rather than fall into the hands of their enemies, ancient japanese samurai preferred to die with honor, voluntarily plunging a sword into the abdomen and moving the sword left to right in a slicing motion. The name of this form of ritual suicide is Seppuku (切腹, “stomach-cutting”). Among the important people who committed seppuku there are Azai Nagamasa, forty-six of the Forty-seven Ronin (1703), Takijirō Ōnishi , and, of course, Luther Blissett.
As the Seppuku restores samurai’s honor as a warrior, in the same way, deals with the liberation of the digital body from any identity constriction in order to help people discover what happens after their virtual life and to rediscover the importance of being anyone, instead of pretending to be someone.
Hacking and parasiting one of the most popular social networking website, deactivates one’s user facebook account, driving people into one of the most radical chic user-experience: the vir(tu)al suicide.
