Attached to long metal poles, blue points of light form a word, followed by a question mark. The word looks like it's floating in the air. It can only be read from a certain point: If you move to the right or left, all you see are blue spots of light.
The question mark crystallizes the interaction between the installation and the people present, challenging them directly by asking them to comment on the question posed: Is infinity a dimension of reality? Or is it only present in our heads?
According to the German philosopher Nicolas de Cues, "the centre is everywhere and the border nowhere". To try to understand this infinity, you have to change your point of view, you have to try to think differently, you have to take different perspectives.
