Holograms Resurrect Destroyed Monuments

Last week in Afghanistan’s Hazarajat region, two massive Buddha holograms filled in the space left behind by the Bamiyan Buddhas, a pair of 1,500-year-old statues that the Taliban destroyed with explosives in 2001. Beamed from a $120,000 projector setup designed by Chinese documentarians Janson Yu and Liyan Hu, the holograms were displayed for over 150 onlookers, including LA Times reporter Ali Latifi, who snapped this picture of what might biggest digital ressurection since Tupac.
