BEYOND INFINITY (2017)

by Pietro Reviglio

(4K, fulldome)

UK / Italy, 20 minutes

 

A journey through painting and space and a piece of experimental filmmaking, Beyond Infinity mixes visual abstraction, a haunting musical score by musicians Nazar Rybak, Jack White and Jon Wright, and 360 degree projection to take the viewer beyond the boundaries of the cosmos into the parallel world of artistic creation. 

Bringing together cosmology, painting and cutting-edge fulldome cinematic technology, the film reflects on the physical universe, its dark side, and the world of imagination, focusing on the pictorial act and the formation of physical structures. It brings painting into full-dome cinema to challenge and push the traditional usage of the two media.

Pietro Reviglio has worked extensively with painting, photography and experimental filmmaking, exhibiting internationally and focusing on the topic of darkness, both as a cosmological and a mental entity. His work is held in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Albright-Knox Gallery, Tate Britain, Columbia University, among the others.  In this project he draws from his background in astrophysics (Columbia University, Ph.D., 2008) and furthers his investigation of the cosmos from an artistic point of view.

Beyond Infinity world premiere was held at Infini.to - Turin's Planetarium and Museum of Astronomy and Space in November 2017, which provided technical support in making it. It has then been selected for the IFF17 Immersive Film Festival (Portugal), the IPS18 Dome Film Festival at Citè de l'Espace of Toulouse (France), the 6th Beijing International Science and Technology Film Festival.
