Alexa, Call Mom! is an interactive IoT installation about grief and love where one user explores Alexa’s channeling powers as a spiritual medium. Due to social distancing guidelines, we are presenting this virtual teaser in lieu of the physical installation.

Our story begins on Mother’s Day. You want to call your mother, but she’s dead. Thankfully, The Beyond Life Skill provides grieving Prime members with a connection to the beyond through Alexa, the Echo device. As you commune with the spirit of Mom, the conversation shifts between comfort and unpredictability.
