May 31, 2017 Gabriel Pulecio transforms light and space into infinity

Premiered at Panorama Festival, ‘Infinity (Tiles Of Virtual Space)’ is a traveling interactive light-art installation designed by New York-based artist Gabriel Pulecio.

The immersive space combines light, sound, and space to introduce the user to a seemingly endless digital three-dimensional matrix of interactive graphics and haunting voids of light, floating in the middle of what feels like infinity.

With the use of Kinect sensors embedded into the ceiling, the user triggers ripples of light that grow from their feet and define a new digital landscape, accompanied by carefully-designed sounds to match.

The touch designer-based algorithms designed by Pulecio that create constant visuals respond to the movement inside, so each person’s experience is unique and personal. The concept of infinity is utilised on a multitude of scales.

Made up of 25 custom-fabricated/ laser cut panels with a combination of mirrored and two-way acrylic sheets, a total of 10,000 LED lights define a hexagonal grid with each light reflecting endlessly into the darkness.

Most recently, the cube was assembled for the filming of ’Emotions Portrait’ as a an immersive backdrop for a dancer, produced by Brooklyn-based video/animation studio Yes Boss.
