Historical Castle Gets Digital Magic Carpet Treatment
Interactive installation brings Moroccan mosaics and Islamic art to life
It’s usually best to leave things the way you found them, especially if we’re talking about 13th-century Italian castles. Despite that advice, the French digital artist Miguel Chevalier has managed to infuse timeless architecture with a psychedelic digital light show. Building off a similar project involving a 1930s Moroccan church, “Magic Carpets” covers the castle’s courtyard with a stunning collection of colors and shapes that reconfigure themselves as visitors move through the space.
