Infinity Boxes

Infinity Boxes by Matt Elson

October 19, 2014–January 4, 2015 in the Grand Gallery and exhibition galleries

Engage your inner artist! Nine “infinity boxes” created by California artist Matt Elson use color, light and mirrors to create optical illusions that envelop viewers who peer inside.

Elson has said, “They are a form of contemporary portraiture that is tuned to social media. Typically, two people will walk up, look in from each side, put their heads in the box, be surprised/get happy, then spontaneously take out their phones, photograph each other and publish those pictures via the web.”
