INFINIT-O : Dreams of Space by Corazon Del Sol is a piece of conceptual art that defies conventional game genres and language. In it, a three-legged avatar walks around a physics sandbox that is filled with objects which represent famous exhibits from the history of modern art. Players guide this awkward creature around the level and can deconstruct art quite liberally by lumbering over the in-game art exhibits. The more the player engages with the world, the more hectic and caotic the world becomes. It plays much like a physics sandbox, but is riddled with insider references to art history.
INFINIT-O is a video game that created as part of the exhibition, Let Power Take A Female Form for The Box Gallery LA. The video game is a conceptual portrait on the life and influence of three generations of women artists, Eugenia Butler, Eugenia P. Butler, Corazon Del Sol. The central character is a pair of three legs that navigates a series of planetary vignettes, with theme elements that oscillate between absurd dreaminess and narrative vehicles that explore the archetypes of woman-hood.Alt Controller
Created for live events is a plush, vagina-shaped alt controller. Players who probe the anus of this controller will find a reset button to start the game, and thereafter they can control the onscreen avatar by pushing left or right on the labia. A joystick is hidden deep inside, right where the clitoris would be, and players can use this move forwards and backwards.

- "The game echoes the sensuality of the Box exhibition, where work from three generations of artists hangs nonhierarchically and nonchronologically. The show is impossible to navigate in a linear way. Viewers have to submit to the experience of it, as they do when playing the game."
- Catherine Wagley , LA Weekly
- "Top 10 Los Angeles Art Shows of 2015 - Del Sol contributed sculptures and created a video game inspired by her mother’s work and her complicated family history. Let Power Take a Female Form brought much-needed attention to this influential, but overlooked, trio of LA women."
- Matt Stromberg, Hyperallergic
- "The game was born by Del Sol’s dictation of a premise based on her grandmother’s life in which the female protagonist employs her status quo to defeat surrounding ‘bourgeois structures’ and ‘ultimately to self-destruct."
- WOAH, WOAH
- "Artist Corazon del Sol's work at the Box lets participants wield a game controller in the shape of a vulva with a joystick (ahem) where the clitoris would be. “If you need to restart the video game," Corazon del Sol told us, “just stick your finger in the anus.""
