Geometric light designs dance in robotic synchronization in Cinzia Campolese's latest work, Continuum. The project, presented at the roBot Festival in Bologna, is a precise feat of hypnosis. As shown in the accompanying 8-minute video, projections are cast onto the surface of a reflective panel—placed in the center of Continuum's subterranean setting—and images merge, reflect, and refract "to create a window between two parallel spaces." A thin layer of smoke augments these effects, while an original, tinny track by Trespur serves as the audio for the audio/visual. 

"Continuum represents the coexistence of duality," Campolese tells The Creators Project. "The combination of the 'two' creates a unique entity that reveals itself as a continuous representation within space... The aim is to create an environment where light is detected as a constant representation in space. The elements of projection touch and traverse the reflective panel, creating opposite aspects of two types of evolutions within the continuum."
