East London Studio IWANT overhauls the birth certificate for the digital age and imagines it to be more personalised and detailed. They visualised the certificate in a digital format as well as a hard copy containing details from the moment we are born.
“All the information on the existing birth certificate is kept – mother, father, name, registrar. For location we added mapping co-ordinates, for the digital version. We then added more detail – exact time of birth, type of birth, physical attributes including weight, length, head circumference, hand and foot prints, blood type and eye and hair colour; then astrological and astronomical details – moon cycle, ruling planet, weather. We included the etymology of the given name, the birth flower and stone, religion and the ruling monarch.”
