In "Dear World... Yours, Cambridge," science, fine art and spirituality meld into a grand light installation at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

The site-specific projection mapping work was commissioned by Cambridge University for a fundraising event that took place at King's College Chapel on Oct. 17. Since the gothic chapel was completed in 1515, it has become a major symbol for the prestigious learning institution, and this occasion marks the first time a digital artist has been invited to the chapel to exhibit a work like this.

"[The] digital installation is a celebration of the open-mindedness and the highness of research of Cambridge University," writes Claude Mossessian, the videographer who documented the installation.

The spectacular night included speeches by Cambridge professors, as well as notable alumni like Sir Ian McKellan and Sir David Attenborough. Each portion of the evening was paired with one of Chevalier's graphical designs inspired by a variety of disciplines ranging from biology and neuroscience to physics and biotechnology.

"Everything floats, branches out, appears and disappears, always turning into something else. Colored lines of light sketch out mental landscapes before our very eyes," Mossessian explains on his Vimeo page.

The evening wrapped up with an unannounced visit from renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, who received his Ph.D from Cambridge in 1966. He closed out the program with a moving speech (included in the video above) that touched on the vital role of academia in solving many of today's toughest challenges.

To celebrate the legendary scientist's work with black holes, Chevaliar arranged "an immersive environment made up of thousands of constellations

Video goodness

DeepDream is a computer vision program created by Google which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dreamlike hallucinogenic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images.
