Altar was established in November 2050 marking the 50th Dia de Los muertos celebration in the 21st century. Altar was created by two Latinx designers who identified significantly with the pre-Hispanic culture and aimed to create a lasting device to connect current and past generations through the power of tradition and technology. What began as a local establishment has now transformed into a multi-facilitated organization with locations in Los Angeles, San Diego, Tijuana and Mexico City who serve the public during October 31st through November 2nd. Altar de Lxs Muertxs holds an annual festival celebration known as Noche de Altares to invite people from all over the world to have the chance to connect and reconnect with present and past lives. For visitors who choose to participate in Altar must register and present themselves with certain criteria as established in the features section. The participant will have the opportunity to be present upon an altar device built to create a connection between the living and dead through specific practices.
Altar experiences take place during our Noche de Altares event starting November 1st. To begin your experience you must present yourself in front of an Altar De Lxs Muertxs altar. Your altar will be the source of connection. To begin a connection with a past individual. You must present three objects pertaining to the individual: favorite food item, personal object and tangible photograph. All three objects will be placed in their designated area on the altar to act as a catalyst for the altar connection to begin. A successful visual and audio connection will be made when your past individual appears on altar glass frame and their voice can be heard through the golden skull on the altar. Your altar experience has a desginated time frame depending on event location.
