This Mexican Cemetery Becomes A Living Cartoon At Night

Director Alejandro Garcia Cabbalero and company, used projection mapping to illuminate the Panteon de Dolores, Mexico’s largest cemetery. Sponsored by Cuidad Intervenida, the cemetery covers 590 acres and contains 700,000 tombs, gravestones and sculptures that are ready to be illuminated with projected light. The Mexico City animation collective Llama Rada got to thinking about how the tombstones could be used to show off “vibrant, living cartoons.” The tombstone animations contain colorful goblins that come to life and playfully animate through the night.
