Mexican firm Maizz Visual has deployed eight Panasonic projectors for video mapping of surfaces as diverse as an open chapel, a grove, a pyramid and jungle cabins at the archaeological site.

Varied video mapping highlights history of Mayan ruin

A son et lumiere show, bringing together video mapping, projections on trees, music, sound effects and narration, is being held at a Mayan archeological site in Mexico.

Pasos de Luz, consists of a one-kilometre long journey through seven stops at key landmarks on the Dzibilchaltún site, and is designed to be visited in groups of approximately 20 to 30 people.

Experience design is by Maizz Visual, which was responsible for the script, art, and 3D graphic animation content production for the six spaces with video mapping projections. The content had to work on surfaces as diverse as an open chapel, a grove, a pyramid and cabins in the jungle.

The projection at the six locations is carried out with eight Panasonic laser video projectors of 13,000 and 16,000 lumens. Every day a team of video technicians is in charge of assembling and disassembling the projectors and adjusting the content in each installation.

The narrative, which was produced in collaboration with Mexico’s National Institue of Archaeology and History, focuses on the the history of the Dzibilchaltún site and its inhabitants. A total of seven stops are soundtracked with works that integrate speech, audio FX and music.

The artistic and architectural lighting of Pasos de Luz has been designed and programmed by SGM Lighting Latin America.
