River to Infinity

The Minneapolis Institute of was showcasing Andrea Stanislav’s Art River to Infinity - the Vanishing Points (2008). The main piece of art was mixed media with sound, video and art work with a lot of mirrors. When walking out into the piece looking down into the “river? of mirrors, there was the effect that it went down into infinity because of the mirrors overhead. With the bright light of explosions being played on the video, the depth that was conveyed was striking. The next room had two headless horses that were made out of glass. The room was filled with mirrors and light reflections; it was quite an experience for the eyes. The horses had shrapnel like things protruding from their sides. I latter found the heads for the horses behind the fallen towers in the first exhibit. I could not quite figure the exhibit out, but it was fun to look at.
