Bringing the Floor to Life in Morocco’s Sacré Coeur

Working in the Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco, French artist Miguel Chevalier created a pixel masterpiece called “Magic Carpets 2014,” which is projected onto the floor of the cavernous space. Like an ever-changing textile unrolled between the columns and stained glass in the magnificent building, the light installation is an ode to traditional Moroccan craftsmanship.
