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.
These audiovisual pieces transform a space into a simulated, abstract, mind-bending environment. This is done by “using the state called immersion,” Anadol writes on his site, “which is the state of consciousness where an immersant’s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an engrossing environment; often artificial, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world.”
Refik Anadol’s Infinity Room is on display at the Zorlu Center of Performing Arts as part of their ongoing 40 METERS 4 WALLS 8 CUBES exhibition, which runs through November 1, 2015. Click here to learn more.
