After transforming a church in Casablanca into a a pixelated Magic Carpet ride, artist Miguel Chevalier created another mesmerizing project for a charity event in Cambridge. The artist cloaked the interior of the historic King's College Chapel in beautiful colors, patterns and textures that transported viewers into deep space and beautiful landscapes.
Chevalier created the immersive projections as part of a University of Cambridge charity event, where renowned professors and alumni gave speeches on biology, physics, health, neurosciences and other important topics. The projections change in real time to create different environments that translate knowledge into immersive experiences. Different colorful universes appear and disappear, merging 16th-century Gothic English architecture with the newest scientific discoveries and beliefs.
The projections engage viewers through sounds as well-thousands of constellations mapped on the chapel walls were complemented with Steven Hawking’s speech about research on black holes. The combination of old and contemporary gave new life to the historic building, transforming the event into a unique occasion that marries art with science.
