CryoStories Institute, Instagram platform, ongoing


Celebrating the life of your Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories is a feature that enables Instagram users to share all the moments of their day, at any time, simply at the touch of a button. Consequently, users don?t have to limit their activity only to posting pictures to their walls. As they share multiple photos and videos, they appear together in a slideshow format: their story.

With Instagram Stories, one doesn?t have to worry about overposting. Instead, they can share as much as they want throughout the day ? with limitless creativity. One can bring their story to life in new ways with text and drawing tools. The photos and videos will disappear after 24 hours and won?t appear on the profile grid or in feed.

CryoStories Institute goes against the short lifespan of Instagram Stories and intends to save their lives and greatly extend their existence. The process of immortalizing your Instagram Story involves taking screenshots (freeze frames) of the content that is about to expire and reposting it on the permanent wall of the CryoStories Institute Instagram profile. Instagram Story held in such a state is said to be a "cryopreserved story", because we do not regard your reposted story as being inevitably "dead". Unlike the cryogenic process involving real bodies, in which one may wake up in the future as a new clone of themselves without the same mind or memory, CryoStories Institute preserves your Instagram Stories in order for your recorded memories to last forever.
