Software by Claude Micheli
With no beginning nor ending, without a centre or with multiple centres, this virtual matrix city is in perpetual transformation and self-generates into a chaotic universe of non-programmable dynamics and flows. It is projected into a utopia from which nature has disappeared at the expense of untamed urban development. Meta-cities is nothing but a vast network, an architecture cyberspace, impossible to explore or know in its entirety.
Miguel Chevalier’s wide-ranging artistic vision has been shaped by a broad education and extensive travel. Since 1982, his art has been dedicated to the exploration of technology. Taking references from the history of art and reformulating them using computer tools, his works investigate the flux and networks that underlie contemporary society. He is known internationally as one of the pioneers of virtual and digital art. His images are a rich source of insights into ourselves and our relationship to the world.
