Matrix II installation makes physical space expand


Erwin Redl, known for his large-scale LED installations, has created “MATRIX II”, a room-size piece of phosphor green LEDs, that creates a physical space that fools the viewer into thinking the space is receding in all directions. The result is similar to the “infinite” mirror effect you get when placing two mirrors across from each other and looking through a two way mirror. Pretty cool effect to see in person.

    This piece was installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego this week, it opened on Tuesday. It will be up for a few months for those on the west coast. For those few readers that are in the Milwaukee area, the most current Matrix piece will be installed there next week. It creates similar effects within the space but utilizes side emitting fiber optics, instead of the LEDs directly.
