Infinite Grid

In art on November 30, 1995 at 11:54 AM

infgridThe Infinite Grid is made of 16 squares. Each square’s image is created by a different artist. They are meant to blend seamlessly with its surrounding squares, crating a bigger picture. The artists can make as many variations to each square as they wish, enabling multiple possibilities for assembling the picture.

The viewer can then choose from the available possibilities. Right now, there are 86,4 billion of different possibilities to assemble the Infinite Grid. The goal is to continue growing and eventually approach infinitude.

I created images and developed an interactive interface with Shockwave/Director for this SITO.ORG project.
