miguel chevalier projects complex meshes to durham cathedral – for lumiere durham 2015, the UK’s largest light festival, miguel chevalier presents the premiere of his artwork ‘complex meshes’. the installation took place at the durham cathedral, a building constructed at the end of the 11th century and which represents the most accomplished example of norman architecture in england. following chevalier’s ‘magic carpets‘, a projection on the floor of the casablanca cathedral in 2014, ‘complex meshes’ is a monumental illuminated artwork that highlights the ribbed-vault ceilings of the durham cathedral’s central nave — a daring architectural feature which was ahead of its time, which announced the beginning of the gothic art style in architecture.

for this piece, the use of wireframe meshes becomes an aesthetic in itself, weaving patterns that overlap, evolve and transform slowly in real time.
