Miguel Chevalier spreads Magic Carpets 2014 over Sacre Coeur in Morocco
Miguel Chevalier (born 1959) is a French digital artist known internationally as one of the pioneers of virtual art.
‘Magic Carpets 2014′ by French artist Miguel Chevalier is an interactive light display spread out across the floor of the former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco. covering it with a huge layer of light, the work references the world of biology, microorganisms, and cellular automata – as cells have the ability to multiply in abundance, divide and merge at different paces. pieces come together, fall apart and transform in shape at rapid speeds. the displayed organic universe mingles with a digital construction of overlapping pixels.
