When Stanley Kubrick envisaged what is now known as the ‘stargate’ sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey, his intention was to create a raw cinematic ‘experience’ that would transport the audience beyond the usual, clichéd depictions of extraterrestrial encounters.

Beyond the Infinite is my homage to that groundbreaking piece of filmmaking. It is a large scale digital film installation that uses similar visual cues to provoke a visceral reaction from its audience. My effort is a more languid affair, but does feature a wide screen format and a central vanishing point as part of an optical tunnel effect.
