About

The infinity box is an old optical trick using simple technology to create a 'tardis-like' illusion of a space larger on the inside than it appears on the outside. For some years, Artist Sarah Sparkes has been exploring the potential of these boxes, previously installing them into coffins, built to fit the artist. Viewed through a peep-hole, a portal opens out into a limitless dimension, referencing both our arrival into this world and our departure from it.
The Belfry space will become home for a structure which is both domestic and everyday whilst serving as a gateway to explore a fascination for 'other worlds'.

Sarah Sparkes is currently undertaking an IGRS research fellowship at the Harry Price Library of Magical Literature, University of London. Together with Ricarda Vidal she co-leads the project 'GHost' an interdisciplinary project exploring the relevance of ghosts in contemporary society. Recent exhibitions include, 'Never Afraid' a solo show at Crimes Town Gallery, London, 'Fate and Free Will' at Riverside Contemporary Art Space, California, USA and 'Sold Out' at Elastic Residence, London
