Noche de Altares
Temporary workshop & installation
Santa Ana, CA
Titled Altar for Creative Souls, the interactive installation was part of the annual Noche de Altares Day of the Dead celebrations. Community members of all ages were shown how to fold paper lanterns, on which they could write wishes for loved ones. The project was conceived under the auspices of the Vietnamese Arts & Letters Association, as the organization's entry altar to show cultural similarities between Mexican and Vietnamese ancestral worship.
