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.
Text and some Photographs from
Neil Hilborn - “OCD” (Rustbelt 2013)
"She’d lay in bed and watch me turn the lights off and on, off and on… she’d close her eyes and imagine days and nights were passing in front of her."
Finally, finally, a high quality video of this poem.
Well damn, looks like my friend/touring partner Neil Hilborn has gone viral! You’ve probably seen this already. So time to watch it again :)
