Infinity Room is an immersive experience that is an integral part of the studio’s ongoing “Temporary Immersive Environment” experiments. Utilizing contemporary algorithms, moving projections, light, sound, and mirrors this piece induces a state of consciousness in which the subject’s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded by an all encompassing environment, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world. Algorithmically generating light, sound, and projection to portray limitlessness, this piece seeks to deconstruct the framework of this illusory space and transgress the traditional  boundaries of the viewing experience.

Light is the major element in the experiment, used to blur and interconnect the boundaries between the two realms of the actual/fictional and physical/virtual. It signifies the threshold between the simulacrum space created by the projection technology, and the physical space where the viewer stands. Rather than approaching the medium as a means of escape, the project sees itself as a means of facilitating a temporary release from our habitual perceptions and culturally biased assumptions. Reframing conceptions of being, Infinity Room enables us, however momentarily, to perceive ourselves and the world around us freshly.
