Shiva Lynn Burgos

Shiva’s work is informed by the traditional styles she learned during her time in Mariwai, a small Kiwoma village located in the Upper Sepik River, Papua New Guinea. As the first international artist to work with this community, she closely worked with the local artists to create a new spirit house constructed to replace the “houseboy” from the 1970’s. In addition, she filmed the opening ceremony of the house and documented through photography, video, and aerial drone technology, and 360 degree virtual reality filming. 

These new components are being edited to create an immersive experience by allowing the viewer to imagine being inside the spirit house as a participant in the ceremonies.
