The Mayor Gallery to present Miguel Chevalier

PIONEER of digital art Miguel Chevalier is opening Ubiquity 1 and Ubiquity 2 at Litchfield Studios and The Mayor Gallery  respectively. Chevalier will be presenting a series of new works in motion on screen, print and sculptures across the two locations, including Méta-cities, a piece which reflects on the urban landscape, responding to the growth and evolution of a city.

You can expect a mesmerising and interactive experience from Chevalier; previous installations include Magic Carpet, a digital carpet of light that unravelled across the floor, creating an immersive atmosphere of colour and shapes, dazzling exhibition-goers. Chevalier incorporates infrared sensors to detect movements of the audience, using computer-generated software to create the sensation of a moving floor. Light and motion move in synergy, encasing the audience in an aesthetically pleasing swirl of neon colours, providing an unforgettable virtual reality experience.

Miguel Chevalier has consistently produced fascinating exhibitions and installations for museums, art centres, galleries and public spaces around the world.  The Origin of the World – Bubble 2018, was recently unveiled on Oxford Circus for the annual collaborative Lumiere Festival in London. It features a virtual-reality installation projected on to a suspended sphere, hoisted above pedestrians.
