Magic Carpet Bangkok, the digital carpet by Miguel Chevalier

1 February 2019

The computer becomes a means to generate art and in the hands of Miguel Chevalier manages to create magnificent installations, such as the Magic Carpet Bangkok.

If the nineteenth century was the century of Realism, the twentieth century that of the Avant-garde, the year 2000 is about to be remembered as the century that saw art become digital. One of the pioneers of this new artistic trend is Miguel Chevalier.

Born in Mexico City, he now lives and works in Paris, and has always dedicated himself to creating works of art that amaze, capture and evade the viewer.
A clear example of this research is the Magic Carpet Bangkok, which, thanks to a computer, manages to recreate all the beauty of Thai fabrics. On a 60m x 14m portion of the floor, in front of the Iconsiam river park, a giant digital carpet is projected, with graphics and motifs that move, change, intertwine and entertain all the spectators who walk on it.
