Magic Carpets Really Do Exist!

French artist Miguel Chevalier has installed a magnificent interactive light display across the floor of the former Sacre Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco.

“Magic Carpets 2014” references the worlds of biology, microorganisms, and cellular automata — with pieces that come together, fall apart and transform in shape at rapid speeds.

When the viewer moves, the curves change underfoot! What a wonderful way to enliven a space, with art, beauty and that certain magic that only new technologies can bring.
