maximum cube


Maximum Cube was one of five new digital art exhibitions for the South East coast in 2000. Funded by the Arts Council of England, the ‘Event Coast’ programme is a celebration of art which uses new technology.

studiofish collaborated with artists Anna Heinrich & Leon Palmer to realise ‘Maximum Cube’, a spectacular optical illusion. An eleven metre translucent passageway, mirrored floor and suspended walkway was constructed to link the interior spaces of the gallery. As visitors walk through the ‘cube’ their footsteps trigger scrolls of moving texts that are projected onto the walls and reflected by the mirrored floor giving them the experience and sensation of physical suspension metres above the ground rather than the few centimetres that they actually are.

Exhibited 13 February 2000 to 19 March 2000, De la Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, UK
