My name is Tomas Burkey, and I'm a multi dimensional artist living and working in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. I am also a co-founder of the La Calaca Festival.


In Mexico we remember our dead with by celebrating with festivities full of colors , dancing, food, music and tequila.


 

With the digital Altar we commemorate those who have passed by projecting a photograph of the friends and family in creative and beautiful way inspired in the traditions of Day of the Dead. We invite you to support this project and be an integral part of this amazing art piece sending your photos and donations.  WE will send you back also a photo of your loved ones as they appear in the altar!
 
This altar takes place in the context of the La Calaca Festival in San Miguel de Allende. La Calaca, the first of its kind, is an international, participatory festival which celebrates Day of the Dead with several events involving urban art, fashion, music, Talks and much more. It is a mix of contemporary art and culture with deep traditions.


We invite you to accompany us as we create a link between the past and the present, bringing our dead back and dancing like calacas. This year's theme is to raise awareness of the animals we have lost and those that are in danger of extinction.
