Zempoal Online Nuit Blanche 2020
An online tour into Zempoal, designed to explore the cultural heritage of Mexico as embodied in the Day of the Dead. Through combined VR and AR interactive media, visitors experienced a warm and transformative connection between people across time and cultures.
Zempoal allowed you to explore the Day of the Dead through five ofrendas (offerings) depicting five stages of the history of the tradition, from ancient Mesoamerica to modern times: Nahua, All Souls, A New Rite, Icons, and Today.
The history of the altars was inspired by the work of Mexican historians and anthropologists, and insights shared by communities who recreate the Day of the Dead each year.
