Chris Levine is a pioneering light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of sensory experience through image and form. Levine’s work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience more widely and a spiritual and philosophical edge permeate his work.

‘Infinity’ was commissioned specially for Kinetica and features Levine’s blipvert technique. Using a vertical stripe of oscillating LEDs, imagery is projected into the viewer’s peripheral vision. If the viewer looks past the light source, the visual effect of the infinity symbol can be seen; however, it vanishes as quickly as it appeared, creating an experience in the eternal ‘now’.

Levine’s work has been exhibited globally including at MOMA, New York, the National Portrait Gallery, London and countless other galleries worldwide.
