Raising the Dead

"Raising the Dead" is a heart-breakingly personal meditation on the loss of my brother, a reflection on universal themes of family, death, loss and mourning, and a demonstration of the difficult process involved in shaping grief into art. Produced with assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, this broadband Flash project - based on the idea of a "virtual" gravesite - employs computer effects to create the illusion that the deceased is acting as host for his own memorial. "Raising the Dead" took two years to complete and contains almost three hours of interactive and chilling memories.
