Nobel Week Lights: Magic Carpets 2023
Time: Daily 4—10pm
Location: City Museum courtyard, Slussen
Price: Free of charge
During the Nobel Week, you can try an interactive light carpet that changes when you move on it.
In the light artwork “Magic Carpets 2023”, you will embark on an imaginative and poetic journey. We will take you through a world of colours and patterns in an optic illusion, inspired by scientific images and symbols.
When you move on the mat, you will see different images on the ground, like in a giant kaleidoscope. You can change the images with your feet. Jump, dance, play, and run!
Artist: Miguel Chevalier (France)
Since 1978, Chevalier has focused exclusively on computers as an artistic means of expression. He quickly secured a spot on the international scene as a pioneer of virtual and digital art. Miguel Chevalier continues to be a trailblazer and has proven himself to be one of the most significant artists on the contemporary scene.
Miguel Chevalier’s oeuvre is experimental and multidisciplinary. Taking references from the history of art and reformulating them using computer tools, his works investigate and explore recurrent themes such as nature and artifice, flows and networks, virtual cities, and ornate designs. His images are a rich source of insights into ourselves and our relationship with the world.
Miguel Chevalier has produced exhibitions and installations for museums, art centers, galleries, and public spaces around the world. He has been awarded a number of architecturally based commissions.
