Today we let you know of one of the latest art installations that caught our attention – a 13th century courtyard lightened up with psychedelic lights. We love how French artist Miguel Chevalier can transform interior spaces like churches and castles into a kaleidoscope of colors. Magic Carpets 2014 is one of his most recent works, an art installation that comes alive at night across the octagonal inner courtyard at the Castel del Monte, a 13th-century architectural beauty located in southeast Italy.
Inspired by the eight-sided structure, Chevalier developed a pattern of psychedelic, interactive lights that respond to the movements of visitors. Shapes and patterns swirl across the floor and, from overhead, the experience looks like a trippy blob of colors that morph together in unexpected formations, set to music by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi.
