Meri Ekola: Infinity

In Infinity the illuminated shape is duplicated by the water reflection.

We humans are trapped in an endless loop of continuous need for growth. We strive to expand in every way without awareness of the destruction we create. In the work Infinity, two curved illuminated shapes form two arcs that are duplicated by a reflection on water and a full image is created, a symmetrical figure of two rounds tight together. This sign ∞  is a mathematical symbol representing the concept of infinity. When the water is still, the shapes on the water surface are repeated as a perfect mirror picture, but as soon as a small wind blows and waves come, the image is distorted. Like this image, our existence is only the result of appropriate circumstances. Something so fragile is impossible to preserve forever. The harmony we are constantly longing for remains a utopia.
