Infinity is a kinetic LED light sculpture/installation by Gooseberry Studio (On view October 4 - 19 @ Van der Donck Park, Yonkers, NY) 
From a distance at dusk Yonkers residents and visitors can spy a subtle twinkle in the distance, within reach of the river near by.  Approaching closer they see a line of light continuously tracing over and over itself to create a levitating infinity. As you pass underneath, when the perspective view is lost, the sculpture transformers to a portal to the sky. The form of infinity references the Hudson River and the project is partly inspired by the Hudson River, which flows both ways (The river was called Muh-he-kun-ne-tuk, the Great Mohegan, by the Iroquois, and it was known as Muhheakantuck (“river that flows two ways”) by the Lenape tribe who formerly inhabited both banks of the lower portion of the river - all of present day New Jersey and the island of Manhattan)
