Produced by Vancouver new media artist Paul Levine as a response to the sudden death of his brother in January 1999, "Raising the Dead" (at www.raisingthedead.ca) is a heart-breakingly personal meditation on the loss of a brother, a reflection on universal themes of family, death, loss and mourning, and a unique demonstration of the difficult process involved in shaping grief into art. Produced with assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts, this broadband web project took two years to complete, involved contributions for 14 Canadian artists, and contains almost three hours of interactive and chilling memories.
Launched October 2002, Raising the Dead will be online for one year.
