Miguel Chevalier Turns Historic Architecture Into 21st Century Virtual Reality

The French veteran has created an entire city of live art.

French visual artist Miguel Chevalier is recognized as an esteemed innovator of his craft. Continuing to look ahead and with an eye for progressive artwork, Chevalier flips the world of historic, universally-revered art into a modern virtual reality experience for his latest effort.

Adorning the confines of Paris’ Saint-Eustache Church with his own intricate network of digital constellations, Chevalier brings together the technologically-advanced world of the future with 16th-century architecture and designs for his latest project. Musically-narrated by talented organist and church mainstay by Baptiste-Florian Marle-Ouvrard, Miguel Chevalier’s new Nuit Nlanche 2016 composition features an all-consuming audiovisual experience that features real-time generations of sky charts and and nearly three-dozen, multi-colored grids of light that immerse visitors in an endless, living network of vibrant, colorful art.

You can view the exhibition video above.
