Cogwell Matrix

Photograph taken from within a steel Cogwell Matrix


A Cogwell Matrix is an infinitely tall mesh of beams laced with fluorescent lights. The matrix approximates the appearance of a night sky, with the lights serving as stars overhead. Some Cogwell Matrices are threaded with catwalks allowing easy transport, although most are not. Cogwell Matrices are usually supported by infinitely tall walls or pillars, but some Cogwell Matrices appear to be supported by cables from above, and others are not supported at all, simply floating in place. The matrix is usually composed of steel or concrete, although more exotic materials are sometimes used.
