An art exhibition that is also a game, Infinity Game explore the visual and algorithm representations of infinity through the eyes of different cultures. It was made by paintings, creative coding, projection mapping, infinity boxes and a mobile application. It’s based on research on ethnomathematics, a culturally contextualized approach on technology.

The visitors were invited into the quest of looking for hidden numbers across the exhibition site. Each number was capable of transforming the projection space in a unique way when inputting the number into the mobile application. Whoever could find them all would win a prize, the academic research paper about patterns in different cultures.

Infinity Game takes the research much further by exploring in a visual form the crossings between cultures spread all over the world. Through the combination of cultural groups architecture and patterns, we create surrealistic interactive representations and we aim to speak about the universality of mathematical language. We propose a shared visual narrative and powerful reminder of how important the free and open exchange of cultural influence is to our collective identity.
