The Gran Museo del Mundo Maya has been lit up with a expansive multimedia installation that has taken over its entire exterior. The sound and light show opens the new museum with a bang. Inspired by its collection of objects that present Mayan civilization not as archaeological vestiges but as a living culture, the projects evoke the culture in an immersive way.

Created by XYZ Technologie Culturelle in collaboration with video painter Xavier de Richemont, the Gran Museo del Mundo Maya "spans the birth of Earth, the history of humanity, and the emergence of contemporary societies, in the form of a huge animated fresco with an audio track of ancient and modern sounds," according to Contemporist.
