The poetic installation “The Phoenix is closer than it appears” by Thilo Frank consists of a cube measuring 4x4x8 metres. This cube is covered with mirrors both outside and inside. When you enter the cube’s interior, you find yourself standing in a space of infinite reflections in which there is a swing hanging down from the ceiling. Take a turn in the swing in a room in which the only reference point is yourself – in infinite perspectives.
Thilo Frank (1978) lives and works in Berlin.

If you’ve ever wanted to step into a room that feels like it goes on into infinity, well, now you can. At Tate Modern in London from February 9 to June 5, 2012, you’ll find a space filled with mirrors and small LED lights, which change color. Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life is by famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, an 82-year-old woman who has spent most of the last forty years of her life as a voluntary resident in a psychiatric hospital.
