The Infinitarium is an organic interactive space that engages people on many levels. The scale of this playful garden is exaggerated, making visitors feel part of the landscape. During the day, different aspects of the piece offer cooling water and misting effects and a shady retreat from the sun. After dark, the fire, water and light effects explode into a brilliant color and light show.
The trumpet flower piece itself engages the visitor from just above head level with a menacing stance that simultaneously intrigues and unsettles. The piece interacts with the visitor by blowing smoke rings from a toroidal cannon inside the flower. When standing in the path of the rings the piece reaches out to the viewer with a gentle puff of smoke
Executed lead artist’s vision and maintained an aesthetic dialogue as the piece took its final two-story shape. Integrated structural mounts and access panels into the design for incorporation of pyrotechnics and accompanying electronics. Coordinated volunteer labor.
