Infinity Box No. 11 ____ Community

Matt Elson Community Infinity Box (No. 11), from the Awakened Vision Series, 2016 2 Way Mirror, Wood, Screws, Acrylic Paint, Mylar, Gatorfoam, Epoxy Resin, LED lighting 30” x 33” (74” display height) x 30” Brian Pinkham LED lighting and programming Community was crowdfunded by the First US Tour in Fall 2014. "Community” (Infinity Box (No. 11) The nexus of four faces, where you meet and become one and find yourself in the many. Community is about the dissolution of the image of Self and the equality of human beings. The longer you spend in the box the deeper the experience becomes. Begin by getting everyone on the same eye height. Merging with the face on your immediate right or left provides a two person interaction. Community is difficult to photograph as it is meant to work with the human visual system as a primary input & receiver so if you add a camera it will be seen. There are many different lighting schemes, each of which will give a different effect. Like all of The Infinity Boxes there is no way to accurately convey the full 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. It's about play, fun, interaction, aliveness, and conscious awareness.
