Maya 2012: Lords of Time - Glyph Writing
On May 5, 2012, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum) opened their world premiere exhibition MAYA 2012: Lords of Time. This timely exhibition explores the Maya's sophisticated systems of language and time and the complex artifacts they created for their god-like kings. The exhibition also debunks the myth that the Maya predicted the end of the world would happen on approximately December 21st, 2012.
For this exhibition, Bluecadet created three interactives—two touchscreens and a multi-player touch table experience—and two immersive projections.
“Glyph Writing” is a touchscreen interactive where Visitors explore the basics of how Maya hieroglyphic writing works, dissect an ancient King’s name, create their own Maya hieroglyphic avatars, and print out their personalized glyphs.
