Giant Light Canons Can Decorate Entire Mountains From One Kilometer Away


This is Machu Picchu, the famous Inca site in Los Andes. And that giant symbol covering the mountaincalled Huayna Picchuis a light drawing projected from one kilometer away using PAE light canons.



In fact, the canons are so powerful that the image can be seen during the day, even from that distance.

2. I love this kind of non-invasive art!
That's why I'm a fan of Christo. Put the art out there then when you take it down it leaves the landscape intact

Trippy lights!

5. Huh? Canons? What sort of scripture is involved here?
And the Misspelling of America continues.
