Sacred Virtual Reality
Looking for an interior design idea to lighten up a dank interior setting? Look no more, because Miguel Chevalier has shown that even the quietest of places, like a church, can be designed to appear astonishingly beautiful.
Known as Voûtes Célestes or “celestial vaults,” it’s a marvelous work by Chevalier on the ceiling of Saint-Eustache Church in Paris. The Mexican born artist, who has been living in Paris since 1985, turned the ceiling of the 16th century church into a constantly altering swarm of lights.
This project creates an immersive virtual reality vision that magically changes color and forms into 35 uniquely different designs when prompted by movement. By turning the ceiling into a starry radiant marvel, Chevalier ensures that his project’s color alterations are only dictated by the visitors inside the ancient church whether through movement or sound.
Chevalier, who is a master in digitally expansive luminous works, leaves nothing to chance in ensuring that the majestic holy arena transforms into an enchantingly accessible glittery piece of magic. You probably wouldn’t want to miss any service if Saint-Eustache was your local church.
