Miguel Chevalier's Illustration of Stephen Hawking's Research Will Blow Your Mind
Cambridge University has no shortage of great names on its list of alumni, from Isaac Newton to Arthur Eddington, the University has produced excellence in a mind-boggling array of fields. Last month, esteemed Cambridge alums including Sir Ian McKellen, Sir David Attenborough, and Stephen Hawking gathered in the King's College Chapel for a special fundraising event.

For the first time ever, the University invited an artist to create a piece of art inside the chapel. The artist invited was Miguel Chevalier, a pioneer of digital and virtual art who had arranged to project a digital interpretation of each speaker's work across the interior of the entire chapel. The results, as this video demonstrates, were nothing short of spectacular.

Of all the projections, it was Chevalier's interpretation of Stephen Hawking's research that was arguably the most striking. Creating an interconnecting web of starscapes across the walls and vaulted ceiling of the 16th century chapel, Chevalier creates something that truly captures the wonder of space.
