Infinity +1 is a project that considers the relationship between the finite/infinite, as illustrated by philosopher Hilbert, through a hypothetical example titled the Grand Hotel paradox, and how the limits and rules of this paradox informs the boundaries of knowledge. Hilbert describes the complete/incomplete paradox by creating a hypothetical hotel, which has an infinite number of occupied rooms. When a hypothetical new guest arrives the previous most recent guest is moved one room over and a new room is created for the new arrival. Thus all rooms are filled to capacity with the capability of admitting new guests ad infinitum.
It is within the space of this concept, the awareness and boundaries of an enclosed infinity, that a relationship arises between the person and the idea. Considering the paradoxical answer Hilbert establishes, Infinity +1 lays out this observation by illustrating the infinity gradations between the limits of the colours white and black.
