At a charity event held in the University of Cambridge, Paris-based digital projection artist Miguel Chevalier turned the university’s 16th-century King’s College Chapel into a stunning backdrop for his hypnotizing light show. As each speaker at the event spoke about their topic, the chapel was filled with projections that artfully illustrated their points.
During a recent charity event, ‘Dear World … Yours, Cambridge’ held at the University of Cambridge, the infamous 16th Century King’s College Chapel was transformed into an entrancing night sky filled with hundreds, perhaps thousands of twinkling stars. Digital projection artist Miguel Chevalier created this generative virtual-reality installation – the first time an artist has been invited to make a work of art in the university’s historic chapel. Chevalier imagines alternate digital universes which serve as inspiration for his moving projections. The moving installation enhances the ornate, Gothic styled architecture of the chapel, allowing the arches and pillars to be visible amongst the swirling digital universe.
