Endless Horizons is inspired by Johannes Kepler’s book Mysterium Cosmographicum, in which the famous astronomer details the geometrical model of the universe. In his sketch, the six known planets at the time, from Mercury to Saturn, are nested within each other, where the space between them is successively occupied by the five polyhedra mathematically closest to the sphere. The installation suggests another reading of this modelization of the universe using regular polyhedra. Surrounded by mirrors, a horizontal screen displays the “planets” in motion, which viewers are led to explore as they move through them. They are invited to embark on an infinite journey into the dimensions of space and time. Here, space is incommensurable, and the image reflected in the mirrors is projected into infinity, abolishing the notion of horizon. The endless time of a journey through multiple worlds loops back into itself and imposes the model of eternal return to the same point.
