The Origin of the World by Miguel Chevalier in Shanghai immerses visitors in a new world of visual art that wraps around a curved wall. The design is similar to other installations he's done in the past, as he likes to create new virtual realities for people to enjoy.

Apparently the work is "informed by the world of biology, microorganisms and cellular automata, [and] the digital projection is cast onto a towering curved wall, wrapping around entrants and enveloping them in organic visuals," as DesignBoom puts it. When people then walk through the space, the wall reacts to their presence, adjusting the visuals accordingly. Chevalier also experiments with various colors used for this project, using everything from vibrant yellows and greens to minimal blacks.
