P17346: Reimagine the Infinity Statue
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

Our goal is to improve RIT’s Infinity Statue, an original piece installed in 1968. The artist's intent was to represent the idea of infinity; both through the 3 sided mobius mounted and top and through it's continuous rotation. Over the last few decades, the drivetrain responsible for this rotation has required reoccurring maintenance, resulting in the statue remaining stagnant for long periods of time.

The intent of this design project is to re-design or modify the statue's drivetrain to assure that the statue's artistic intent is realized.
