Infinity Box No. 9 ____ Life Size

Matt Elson Life Size Infinity Box (No. 9), from the Awakened Vision Series, 2014 Glass Mirrors, Plexiglass Mirror, Wood, Screws, Acrylic Paint, Hinges, Electrical Cable Created with the generous support of Gryphon Moulding Naim Busek & Liana Bandžiulyt LED Strips, Teensy Microcontroller, Wire, Solder 48” x 76” x 96” "Life Size” (Infinity Box No. 9) is the first immersive Infinity Box. It's for two people at a time. You enter from the door on either end of the box and each entry becomes a portal to a world with perspectives of yourself and 'the other' that are simultaneously claustrophobic and expansive. “Life Size” has been designed to facilitate photography and distribution through social media. Please photograph page this to accompany your photos inside. “Life Size” is a collaboration with Naim Busek & Liana Bandžiulyt who have added fiber optic lighting elements and, by doing so, have expanded and activated the space. Like all of The Infinity Boxes there is no way to accurately convey the experience other than to have it. The Infinity Boxes are part of The Awakened Vision Series - artworks that are physical, experiential and create a new perspective, and an active awareness, of the vision we normally assume. These works, like your life itself, are about play, fun, interaction, aliveness, and conscious awareness.
