Finnish glass artists Sini Majuri and Marja Hepo-aho discover the limits of the ancient art of glass in the Infinity Vessel production opening in Venice on September 2022. The myth of Pandora comes to live when contemporary glass mixes with holographic art, haunting soundscapes and grim interpretation of AR.

Majuri and Hepo-aho uses augmented reality as a way to illustrate a hidden – subconscious levels of human mind, where all the fears live. The modern tech reaches the intangible surfaces of expression in the narrative that mirrors the state of the society – asking what happens when human is disconnected from humanity.

As in the myth of Pandora, hope is an important part of the whole, and it is reflected via the profound connection between humanity and craftmanship. The connection is interpreted in a Live glass blowing show at the legendary Berengo Studio Murano.

In the glass show the artists demonstrate how the hope is the final thing released from the Pandora’s vessel. The vessel is paradoxically broken and whole at the same time – as a metaphor to a human.

Infinity Vessel production is a riddle where the participants are experiencing contemporary glass art in a adventurous way. It is a live show, exhibition as well as a real life treasure hunt where valuable glass sculptures are hidden in the maze of Venetian Streets. The open hunt will last for nine days and has a AR level tied to the experience – where the treasure hunters will see the horrors of Pandora spreading across the ancient city.

The Infinity Vessel project has three parts: an installation, live show and a treasure hunt. The installation is a vessel that is broken and whole at the same time, as a paradox. Horrors and nightmares are illustrated via hographic art and augmented reality – as layers of the experience.
