“They say Mexicans have a special fascination with death,” writes Christian Bermejo of the Mexican animation website Tweenbox. “We don’t believe it but maybe playing around with mapping in the cemetery doesn’t help.”

The following projection mapping piece, Panteon de Dolores, brings alive the Dolores Cemetery with a colorful procession of animated characters. Directed by Alejandro Garcia Caballero of the Mexico City-based Llamarada, it was one of six pieces commissioned for Ciudad Intervenida, a project that invited a half-dozen Mexican animators to reinterpret public spaces.
