Description

Through the use of infrared photography, mapping projection, and augmented reality components, artist Mirna Chacín creates Elegy for Souls on Hold, a poetic memorial for those who have passed due to COVID-19. This community-based project uses different new media elements to collect personal stories and help communities in the process of loss and grieving during pandemic times. Mirna Chacín is a Venezuelan-born Canadian visual artist whose work reflects on concepts around loss and grief, uprooting, belonging, and cultural traditions through the engagement of communities from a perspective of diversity and inclusion.
