INFINITY ROOM by Refik Anadol | Exploratorium

The “Infinity Room” exhibit is an immersive environment project created by award-winning media artist and designer Refik Anadol. It allows visitors to step into an otherworldly portal where they are enveloped by distorted light and perpetually morphing visuals powered by Epson’s state-of-the-art laser projectors. Anadol uses four Epson Pro L1505U large venue laser projectors’ to create the immersive twelve-by-twelve foot environment.

“By using Epson’s laser projectors, ‘Infinity Room’ has almost 50,000 lumens, which creates a magical environment for Exploratorium visitors,” said Anadol. “Light is the major element in this exhibit, and I think the most important part of the experience is the quality of light the Epson laser projectors provide, as it is used to blur and interconnect the boundaries between the two realms of actual/fictional and physical/virtual.”

“Refik Anadol’s ‘Infinity Room’ is an inspiring, eye-opening experience,” says Chris Flink, the Exploratorium’s Sakurako and William Fisher Executive Director. “Digital and physical realities merge, and you become more attuned to what is happening around you. This curiosity and awareness is what we cultivate and curate at the Exploratorium – you make sense of the world and you become more awake to its possibilities. We’re ecstatic to be able to share ‘Infinity Room’ with our visitors this summer on Pier 15, and grateful to Epson for enabling it with their impressive projectors.”

The “Infinity Room” exhibition will run at the Exploratorium, a museum of science, art, and human perception, from June 15 through July 15, 2018, and will be one of the featured installations for the Lightplay festival on June 16.
