Silène Luminaris sive Muflier de Borges is a steel sculpture painted in red of 11,15 ft height. This sculpture was commissioned and realized for the second edition of the AP'Art Festival, Alpilles-Provence'Art. With the software Fractal Flowers, Miguel Chevalier can generate "imaginary flowers", stop them at the time of their growth in order to obtain a 3D file which allows him to realize model in resin with the new 3D printers. These "digital sculptures" are used to realize steel larger-scale sculptures, as Silene Luminaris.
