Tapis Magiques (2014) by French artist Miguel Chevalier is an interactive light display projected on the floor of the former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco, set to the underwater music of Michel Redolfi.

As viewers move around the ever changing pixelated  display, the projection patterns (based on biological forms, Islamic art and Moroccan carpet designs) curve around them.
