There is a problem with ancient monuments. There aren't going to be any more. What we have is what we have, and we need to look after them. This leaves conservators with a challenge, attracting visitors attracts funding, but visitors can easily damage delicate structures.

Christie enlightens Mexico's ancient past, preserving it for the future

That's why the reopening of Nocturnal Experience at Teotihuacan – an ancient Mesoamerican city in Mexico and a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site is so important. A 45-minute show projected onto the Pyramid of the Sun, along the Avenue of the Dead and finally the Pyramid of the Moon it tells the story of Teotihuacan culture without damage to an irreplaceable site. It is non-intrusive and it leaves no trace.
 
Developed by Christie partners Cocolab, the show uses nineteen Christie Roadie 4K45 projectors, and the combined skills of researchers, storytellers, lighting designers, scriptwriters, animators, programmers and engineers.
 
It's a tour-de-force in how modern AV tech can both present and preserve our world heritage – all while educating an audience of more than 30,000 a year that make it Mexico's most visited archaeological site.
