The Infinity Portal
This project is to build an infinity mirror with some interactive elements and special features, along with an altar that it will be mounted on. The size, complexity and interactivity of the final project with scale depending on the funding received.
An infinity mirror is a special kind of mirror that uses two mirrored surfaces with a gap between them. On the outside is a two-way mirror that the viewer looks through. On the inside is a mirror. Between the two, LEDs, EL wire, candles, or other luminescent stuff can be placed. These will be reflected seemingly infinitely to a vanishing point that moves with perspective.
Here is an example - http://youtu.be/0dE9IScVBHI?t=58s
If we get our maximum funding goal, we will build a full-size sacred mirror with an infinity mirror that is activated by proximity and turns itself on to a user that stands in front of it. It appears to be a nicely-decorated full-length mirror otherwise. A rainbow portal to infinity will open up to those that stand in front of it. The entire assembly will be on an altar.
Link to Budget
The project will be entirely self-contained and therefore should not leave any trace. The elements to clean up are the altar, the extension cord, and the generator.
The community build will be open to all and hosted at Freeside. Once at the event, the installation will ideally blow the minds of all who look upon it. Ideally. Afterwards, we'll find a nice home for it so that people can continue to enjoy its mind-blowingness.
