Miguel Chevalier, the digital art trailblazer who previously wowed us with floral projection installations, 3D-printed busts, and digital magic carpet rides, comes to Ibiza to premiere his latest installations, Liquid Pixels 2015 and Fractal Flowers 2015. The works are a part of HeART Ibiza, which is a colletion of gastronomy, art, and design by Albert and Ferran Adrià in collaboration with Cirque Du Soleil.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Chevalier’s Fractal Flowers, but we've never seen them quite like this. Chevalier’s new installations immerse viewers in a blossoming, technicolor dreamworld intended to emulate the Ibizan sea. Fractal Flowers 2015 is an interactive piece designed to “stoop and bow in order to welcome the public into this mysterious virtual garden, then display their most beautiful colors and shapes, merged on colored backgrounds,” according to the work’s press release.

Watch the anthropomorphic flowers dance and the liquid pixels drip in the video by longtime Chevalier collaborator, Claude Mossessian, below.
