Infinity Chamber

In Landsman’s piece, a medium sized black chamber (twelve feet cubed), was constructed. Within the chamber, over six thousands tiny lights were placed all around and a complex series of mirrors was installed. The effect was a seemingly infinite space, full of darkness and small-secluded lights (much like stars in space). Upon entering this chamber one is immediately struck by the immensity of the effect, lost in space and potentially time. According to Landsman, “It’s a room you walk into, and it’s like being with God. There’s no space in there, yet there’s the sensation of infinite space,” (mam.org). The spectator experiences a fully immersive environment here and is left only with the thoughts and reactions in his/her mind.
