16th-Century Gothic Chapel Turned Into Starry Night Sky

At a charity event held in the University of Cambridge, Paris-based digital projection artist Miguel Chevalier turned the university’s 16th-century King’s College Chapel into a stunning backdrop for his hypnotizing light show. As each speaker at the ‘Dear World… Yours, Cambridge’ event spoke about their topic, the chapel was filled with projections that artfully illustrated their points.

The projections, specially designed for the famous chapel’s interior, at times either emphasized or hid the building’s extraordinary architecture. The chapel is one of the best examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture in the world, so its ornate decorations were worth seeing even before they served as a backdrop for Chevalier’s projections.

The King's College dining hall in Oxford was actually the real world inspiration for the Hogwarts Great Hall, so you're not that far off. But that would make this.... reality inspired by art inspired by reality?
