Heavenly Vaults

Recently, the Mexican artist Miguel Chevallier created 'Heavenly Vaults' in the church of Saint-Eustache in Paris. In Chevallier's own words: "These digital constellations of pixels immerse visitors in an atmosphere bathed in light while opening unto infinity."

This creation was accompanied by musical improvisations played by Baptiste-Florian Marle-Ouvrard, organist of St. Eustache and singers of Les Chanteurs de Saint-Eustache. Heavenly Vaults was an interactive digital installation projected on the ceilings of the church. Astonishing imaginary sky maps emerged in real time. Colored light shone in the form of sinuous networks. Large meshes were formed and deformed, following the movements of visitors.
This work resonated with the architecture of the building and highlighted the volumes of columns and arches. Surprising effects of trompe l'oeil were created, to amplify the impression of height and lightness in the church.
Unfortunately, the installation only ran one night, on the first of October. But there's a great video available, as well as many pictures.
