A Crack in the Hourglass: An Ongoing Covid 19 Memorial

This was a fascinating yet eerie display.. Created by Mexican artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, this work uses sand, glass, a robotic platform, cameras, computers, and the like, to depict pictures of those who have passed due to covid 19. Individuals can submit pictures of their departed to the site and the picture of the individual will be cast into sand.

The process begins with the hourglass which holds sand.

Then a picture is drawn using the sand.
