Emergence of Infinity: Namashita + Kobayashi

Berlin-based artists Mai Namashita and Naoto Kobayashi play with the notion of "desire paths," walking trails that are created through use rather than by design, in a project now on view at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. In Infinity, the pair spent five days running the pattern of an infinity loop. They took one digital photo every second and sped it up in playback as a Quicktime movie.

For more on desire paths see the dedicated Flickr pool (via BLYGAD2.0).
