After al long journey abroad (in China, Germany, Italy), this grand exhibition returned to Mexico with a new subtitle: Crossed Looks, that adds testimonies contained in indigenous texts and 16th century civil and religious chronicles, within the framework of 500 years of the first Spanish expedition debarkation on Maya lands.
The concept of beauty addressed on this exhibition, is seen not only form the aesthetic perspective but in relation to the sublime, the divine. Each interactive we developed responded to the concept of beauty of the ancient Maya. On a 42-inches touchscreen, were presented a series of photographs of outstanding pieces as well as information related to them. Another interactive module allowed the visitor to create an avatar to wear different elements such as ornaments, facial painting, skin scarifications, hair or headdresses to make him look like an ancient Maya.
A mobile App was also designed that invited the user to find clues about specific topics that he was completing during his visit in order to obtain rewards. In addition we designed and developed an informative website about this temporary exhibition.
