    The starting point for Units of Infinity is the city that lies behind the facades. All the religious interiors of one city (Antwerp, Belgium) are recorded in pictures and sound recordings. The spaces are often set in strict social systems, voluntarily isolated through rigid rituals and all-encompassing beliefs. Units of Infinity seeks to represent the thin boundaries between intimacy, interior, identity and politics through a jumble of images and sounds that overlap, neutralize and nuance. They are brought together in a confined panoptic space, a monitoring room, that seeks to control and outclass the all- seeing metaphysical eye.
