Día de Los Casi Muertos

Día de Los Casi Muertos or Day of the Almost Dead is an ongoing multimedia project that explores the cultural differences between Mexican and American experiences with death and aging. The aim of the project is for contemporary American society to examine their values by confronting the taboo of death ultimately pushing us to appreciate the gift of life. 

The project engages community members of diverse ages and backgrounds through sculpture, video, and photography. Video interviews give participants the opportunity to talk openly and candidly about their experiences with death.
