An AI video of lost souls.

Desaparecidos is a video inspired from a trip to the city of Medellin in Colombia. The artist, deeply moved by the stories of those who have suffered such losses, sought to create a powerful statement through art. Museo Casa de La Memoria in Medellin displays the emotional toll on the families of victims of the many crimes committed by armed groups in Colombia. In her widespread coverage of the Beirut port blast, the artist chose not to reopen those wounds. Desaparecidos takes a unique approach, using artificial intelligence (AI) to create clone-like figures with masked eyes against backdrops of the artist’s own photographs. This installation serves as a powerful commentary on the theme of disappearance, justice, and the haunting effects of unresolved tragedies.
