"infinitarium" is an organic environment that is highly interactive as it engages people on many levels. The scale of this playful garden is exaggerated, making visitors feel part of the landscape, yet humbled by nature as it looms large above them. It is a destination for people to interact with each other and the art, and contemplate the role reversal of nature being larger than human-kind. The installation is made of salvage and scrap materials, keeping it's environmental footprint to a minimum. This aspect supports the message of the sculpture; that we are small parts of a larger entity.
The components of the sculpture include water fountains, fire fountains and unique solar-powered lighting effects. The installation occupies approximately an acre. From a distance, the installation appears to be an unusual and enchanting landscape. As people draw closer to the site, the over-size scale, the elaborate details and the smaller components captivate viewers. Once they have entered the installation, visitors are enveloped by this natural, enormous environment.
