The light installation allows visitors to get lost in time and space, observing the imaginary rotation of the luminous cylinder.
The work is inspired by the concept of "Tipler time machine" based on the assumption that an infinitely long volume in rotation along its longitudinal axis, It can cause mutations in space-time, spatial and temporal distortions that would make it possible to time travel.
The animations continuous RGB laser give the idea of rotating matter, generating a strobe effect. For users it is proposed an optical effect: It may seem that their rotation is slow, others will be fast, some will observe the movement in a clockwise direction, still others in the opposite direction.
