In The Infinite Blue, Lulwah Al Homoud engages the viewer in an immersive experience. To her, there is a special connection between the specific blue color used in the installation and the light in the sky as it fades or shines brighter. A change of color can be witnessed in the sky at sunrise and sunset prayer times. This special blue tells us that the earth is turning around to face the sun again. Viewers will enter a universe evoking the dark blue sky, projected with animated images based on The Language of Existence series, a life-long project for the artist.
