Photographer's Note

This is the third in a series of photographs taken during Scottsdale's Fall 2018 Canal Convergence and is of the "Infinity Crystal". I've called this photograph Amazed both because of the internal reflections and, mainly, due to the expressions on the children's faces.

Canal Convergence was 10 consecutive days of wonder at Scottsdale Public Art’s annual confluence of water + art + light with large-scale, interactive artworks; hands-on activities and workshops; artist talks; live music; and dance performances along its waterfront - the Arizona Canal. All art installations were on display each day of the event.

"Infinity Crystal" by the Klip Collective is an infinity mirror sculpture that uses form, light, and mirrors to create the illusion of infinity. During the day, the mirrors reflect the landscape around the sculpture, but at night, "Infinity Crystal" transforms with light, color, and movement. This unique animated neon light technology uses smart LEDs to create dynamic patterns and movement with digital video. Projections on the canopy of trees above Infinity Crystal will combine with ambient sounds to create another dimension of interaction.

Klip Collective creates light and sound experiences under the creative direction of visual artist, Ricardo Rivera. A self-taught filmmaker and a pioneer of video projection mapping, Rivera has earned a United States patent for his technological breakthroughs in the medium. Since starting Klip Collective in 2003, his work has been featured multiple times at the Sundance Film Festival, including the creation of the pre-film bumper in 2014. Rivera earned a Creative Capital grant in 2015 for Vacant America, a meditative visual reinterpretation of found objects, oral histories, and residual memories from shuttered spaces. With a skilled team of technologists and digital artists at Klip Collective, Rivera directed Nightscape, an immersive cinematic choreography of light and sound throughout Longwood Gardens, which attracted over 175,000 visitors in 2015 and again in 2016. He directed Electric Desert: A Light and Sound Experience, which opened in October 2018 at Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.
