INFINITE DISPLAY is a light installation in the underground swimming pool of a mid-century private home. Using high-fidelity microphones and custom designed lamps and mirrors, all activity in the pool is translated into a continuous and constantly changing light display that creates the illusion of a three-dimensional space beyond the boundaries of the room.
The surface of the INFINITE DISPLAY consists of two seamless, parallel mirrors that span the entire rear wall directly behind the swimming pool. Between the mirrors a series of custom-made LED lamps developed by KRAM/WEISSHAAR, and manufactured by Flos, are placed at floor level at regular intervals. The frontmost mirror is semi-transparent, allowing for a percentage of the light from the luminaries to pass through, and an equal percentage to be reflected back towards the rear mirror – this configuration forms an endlessly expanding light reflection that creates the illusion of a space behind the pool.
