An ambiguous figure walks from a wormhole to another wormhole. This installation elicits communication by creating a hole in the space time continuum, allowing the viewer to experience the fourth dimension, and addressing the notion of time and our place within the universe.
You can view this augmented reality installation at Smithsonian’s Arts + Industries Building.
