About the event

Until 2018, the Precolumbian Zapotec city of Mitla had never been reconstructed in 3D, and was rarely depicted in colors. French digital artist Ludovic Celle dedicated a full year of investigation and 3D modeling to transform our visual perception of ancient Mitla, releasing a realistic and carefully detailed digital model of this iconic Zapotec site. This talk explores the story of this illustrative project, linking archaeological data and the

role of intuition and imagination to fill in the blanks for an immersive exploration of a very special landmark of ancient Oaxaca.
