Infinity Room

An infinite installation about big data

San Francisco

In collaboration with journalist Simon Rogers and Roundhouse (Portland), Universal Everything created an immersive  narrative experience exploring the power of big data.

 

A 15’ x 8’ mirrored room and subtly choreographed pixel spheres echoed the LED animations, creating an endless digital landscape. Designed in code and running in real-time, the experience tells the story of the world around us through the medium of a simple US quarter.

 

Tied into a major Microsoft product launch, the Infinity Room was installed at 3 Embarcadero Center in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District over three days. Members of the public and conference VIPs were invited to experience a powerful visualisation of the insights that can be gained through Microsoft’s new data analysis tools.
