Maze of Infinity

YouTube Link

We featured Ron Brinkman's Box of Infinity on May 21st. Meet its Grand Daddy, on exhibit through the 21st of June at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery on Christie Street in New York City. This structure of mirrors is the work of artist Lee Bul, originally from Seoul, Korea and regarded as one of the premier Korean artists of her generation, with work shown in the top art museums worldwide.

This video from The Creators Project, which features several of Bul's pieces, shows the mirrored "maze" at 1:45. Called "Via Negativa," it is constructed of mirrored glass panels that form a seemingly infinite space by reflecting its interior. The outer surface of Via Negativa is lined with mirrors printed with text from a book on self awareness by Julian Jaynes. Bul talks about the meaning behind the artwork and her hope that it provokes those who view it to contemplate their identities.
