Old Town Scottsdale is one of Arizona’s largest attraction sites for those visiting from elsewhere, and the old, western themed town is filled with many attractions, and the contemporary art museum did not disappoint when showcasing their “Infinity Room.” The exhibit came to Scottsdale May 26 and is coming to an end Sept. 30, making it one’s stop to an insane illusion this Summer.

The brilliant mind behind this exhibit would be Refik Anadol, a media artist and director born in Istanbul, Turkey. He currently resides and works in Los Angeles, California where his astounding work continues. According to the biography written on Refik Anadol’s website, “As a media artist, designer and spatial thinker, Refik Anadol is intrigued by the ways in which the transformation of the subject of contemporary culture requires rethinking of the new aesthetic, technique and dynamic perception of space.”

The exhibit is the main attraction once you step foot into the museum, and it is a timed entry as only a certain amount of people can enter it giving them the full experience with no interuptions. Guests step into a mirrored room, using light, sound and technology to vividly create a three-dimensional kinetic and architectonic space, according to the SMOCA website. The time spent in the room is a maximum of four minutes allowing camera and videography, but absolutely no flash. Multiple sceneries are projected in the room, and a guest would have to go in twice to experience all.

When experiencing the exhibit first hand, I was able to witness a collection of an infinite amount of lines, rays and stars all at different angles and times, making the experience different each time. I definitely felt as if I was standing on nothing and floating in the air with the people in the room surrounding me – just nothing but that and the astonishing scenery. The floor guests are stepping on is pure glass, meaning they are required to put on shoe covers to avoid any mess.

“The work is as experiential as it is thought provoking; the resulting experiment invites viewers to question their own perception of place and self,” according to the description on the SMOCA website.
