The piece is devised like a slice from an orb. It is suspended in a corner, above the viewers’ average height. At the bottom of the slice opens an aperture. Peeking through the aperture, in the darkness contained within, one sees infinite sparkles expand beyond the physical restriction of the instrument.
The sparkling infinity is the result of an optic illusion. Within the instrument, on the left is a piece of black glass embedded with dust. The specks are illuminated when the glass is lit from the side. On the right and above are black mirrors reflecting the shine from the left.
