Artist Reception for The Infinity Boxes

February 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Meet the artist, Matt Elson, and experience The Infinity Boxes on the last day of their public exhibit. The Infinity Boxes will be featured at the cathedral’s gala Carnivale, on February 21. Find out more about Carnivale.

The Infinity Boxes started as an LA underground art phenomenon in 2012, grew up in the Burning Man community where they are a regular feature, then matured through art fairs, science museums, and interactive art venues to reach over 2 million people (and counting) across the United States and London. The Infinity Boxes thrive on being in the middle of the flow of the human race creating spaces of connection, contemplation, and shareable photos. They have been featured at top art galleries in America, Area 15 in Las Vegas, Google Headquarters, various museums including the Science Museum (London), auctioned at Sotheby’s (and currently featured there online), and have been purchased by art collectors internationally.  

About the Artist 

Matt Elson was born in San Francisco and raised in Modesto, California. He attended Pratt Institute in New York City and graduated with a BFA in Painting. He completed a master’s degree in Communications at the New York Institute of Technology. Elson became a pioneering computer graphics artist with Symbolics Inc., a company that evolved out of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab. After stints with Magnet Interactive Studios, DreamWorks Animation and Walt Disney Feature Animation, working on films like Shrek and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, he discovered Burning Man and began attending the main event in 2007. The Burning Man community has been central in his artistic efforts since that time.
