The Gallery | The beauty of interchanges

Chicago-based web developer and artist Nicholas Rougeux has transformed civil engineering into a masterpiece of digital art by creating images of major interchanges.

Called Interchange Choreography, the collection of images is made up of interchanges from around the world where there are three or more different roads. Using mapping technology, Rougeux transformed the roads with colour, softening their sharp edges and cutting the image off where they ramp off or merge into another road. The roads were colour-coded from red for major roads to pink to minor roads.

He wrote about the project: “Applying colours to roads and using connecting roads to blend those colours adds structure and breathes new life in to areas that are often avoided for their complexity. The results resemble everything from dancers to otherworldly creatures.”
