Light projected into a mirrored room creates seemingly infinite patterns in this installation by Turkish artist Refik Anadol, at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.
For the Infinity installation, Anadol took over a cube-shaped room that sealed so no openings could be detected.
Projectors in the centre of each wall were programmed to work together – displaying light patterns that appeared to span across all four surfaces.
The artist installed mirrors on the ceiling and floor so that these moving images were reflected infinitely.
“Light is the major element in the experiment, used to blur and interconnect the boundaries between the two realms: actual/fictional and physical/virtual,” said Anadol.
“It signifies the threshold between the simulacrum space created by the projection technology, and the physical space where the viewer stands.”
