Miguel Chevalier's Power Pixels 2013 features computer generated video projections that are ever-changing and never repeat (music by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi). View a sampling of the interactive exhibit here.
Miguel Chevalier graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1980. Since 1978, he has focused exclusively on computers as an artistic means of expression and has dedicated lots of time to the exploration of technology. He quickly secured a spot on the international scene as a pioneer of virtual and digital art. Miguel continues to be a trailblazer, and has proven himself one of the most significant contemporary artists.
Taking references from the history of arts and reformulating them with the use of computer as his tool, his works investigate the flux and networks that underlie contemporary society. His images provide a rich source of insight into our relationship to the world. Miguel Chevalier’s oeuvre is experimental and multidisciplinary. He has developed and refined his highly individual approach over the course of numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the world.
