This geological fault flows into the hydroelectric dam known as Chicoasén. If you stay alert, you might see crocodiles and exotic birds during about two hours of the boat tour. As long as you are entering the canyon, you begin to feel yourself smaller. It´s cliffs are over a kilometer above the river level. There is a legend that says the native people of the region wouldn´t want to be conquered so they made a massive suicide from the top of the canyon thinking they would be “free” after death. This canyon is so important that the silhouette that makes is actually the base of the Coat of Arms of the State of Chiapas and of course is one of the most important tourist attractions.

You might remember experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats for the CenturyCamera, his ambitious project which involved installation of 100 ultra-long-exposure cameras in and around Berlin, Germany "to continuously document 100 years of municipal growth and decay for scrutiny and judgment by future generations" between 2014 and 2114. But today, Keats goes a step further and begins yet another groundbreaking and unprecedented project with the Millennium Camera.
