Fractal Constellation By Miguel Chevalier

Show Full Text

2 private collectors in Belgium have asked to the french Digital Art pioneer Miguel Chevalier to design a custom virtual installation.

They have no more space on their walls but the artist reply was amazing!
He told them he could do a virtual ceiling and create a Generative Fractal Constellation visible every nights.

“Fractal Constellations” is a fractal shapes generator that gradually generates a cloud that transforms in real time. Using an iPad, the owner of this installation can select one of four clouds of differing shapes and colors.
Fractals belong to a specific branch of geometry in which each element can be reproduced ad infinitum and in such a way that one part of the object is similar to the entire object. A simple initial structure becomes endlessly more complex. Within this vital flow, everything floats about, revolves around, and branches out, always turning into something else through the interweaving of multiple lines of colored light, layered networks, and varied pathways. The lines wander off in all directions, thereby sketching out abstract landscapes before our very eyes, as in a form of automatic writing. Beneath the apparent anarchy of forms lie hidden several geometrical orders.
Within the loft, this digital pixel constellation creates a magical atmosphere and reaches to infinity.

Miguel Chevalier
Works with the help of his team for this project:
Claude Micheli for the software
Voxels Productions and Antoine Villeret for the technical set-up.

The installation is based on 1 pc generating in Real Time 8 HD images for each videoprojectors.
The collectors can choose between 6 differents Constellations for their nights!
