Interesting installation by LA-based Turkish artist via the Creators Project
Representing the infinite is, in its very nature, problematic. But that hasn’t stopped it from making an appearance in art, time and again. LA-based Turkish artist Refik Anadol tackles the concept in his latest installation, an immersive room that radiates projected generative patterns across its four walls. Called Infinity Room, it’s part of what Anadol calls his Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments and is exhibited at the Zorlu Center of Performing Arts in Instabul…
…For this installation, that non-physical world is infinity algorithmically generated using light, sound, and projection. The result is a room that looks like you’ve just stepped into some kind of otherworldly portal or cosmic gateway, as the swirls, curls, and linear forms cause the walls to melt away. But Anadol says the idea is not purely escapism, instead it’s a chance to cleanse those doors of perception—a kind of psychotropic experience minus the drugs.
