Infinity Lines was an expansive site-specific installation for SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia. The immersive artwork continued Shiota’s examination of the interconnectivity between possessions and the narratives they hold. 

Shiota incorporated antique wooden chairs that showed evidence of their previous use. Red yarn connected one chair to another and also to the surfaces of the gallery itself, filling the space and tying individual stories and memories together, like neurons mapping memories in the brain. Just as memories and life experiences stay with each individual throughout their lives, the objects in the exhibition retained the personal histories of their owners and symbolically linked present and past.
