This Psychedelic 'Magic Carpet' Reacts When You Step on It

Michele Debczak

Earlier this month, Miguel Chevalier launched an interactive exhibit that invited viewers to walk all over it. As people move over this "Magic Carpet," the technicolor display beneath their feet is designed to morph in response to their footsteps.

According to designboom, Chevalier’s creation was on display at the Milton Keynes International Festival in England from July 15 to July 24. This most recent installation isn’t the first we’ve seen of the project. The French digital artist debuted his Magic Carpet back in 2014 on the floor of the former Sacré Coeur church in Morocco. For a look at the mind-bending footage from the Magic Carpet's initial run, you can check out the video above.
