Artist Transforms Church Floor into Stunning Mosaic (Video)

Updated

It’s like an Indiana Jones movie, only nothing’s trying to kill you.

Artist Miguel Chevalier transformed the floor of the Sacré Coeur church in Casabalanca, Morocco, into a beautiful, touch-sensitive mosaic of light and color.

Chevalier partnered with software designers Cyrille Henry and Antoine Villeret to create a carpet that responds to visitors’ movements by shifting the trajectory of its design. Called Magic Carpets, the installation is inspired by the mosaics and carpets of Islamic art.

It also seems like it’s really, really fun to play with.

Claude Mossessian’s short film shows visitors to Sacré Coeur meandering around the beautiful display from a variety of angles, set to music by Michel Redolfi.
