- Behind The Scenes
The Void appears as a vast endless expanse of nothingness. The floor is covered in a thin layer of water. It is completely empty, not including Eleven herself or whatever or whoever she is trying to locate. Originally, Eleven could only enter the Void while sensorily deprived, specifically when she was submerged in a sensory deprivation tank. By 1984, Eleven's powers had grown to the point where she could enter the Void without subjecting herself to total sensory deprivation. Simply blindfolding herself and listening to the white noise of a television was sufficient to induce the state. Eventually, even this wasn't needed, her powers having grown strong enough were she just had to close her eyes and concentrate. In this space, she can psychically locate people she usually can't reach under normal circumstances. Distance doesn't appear to be an issue, as she immediately found the Russian spy a continent away - she even found the Demogorgon, which was in a different dimensionentirely....
The Void bears resemblance to another void-like place in the 2013 film Under the Skin, where the main character, played by Scarlett Johansson, lures unsuspecting men. The Duffershave confirmed the film as being the direct inspiration for the Void. When creating the Void, the Duffers decided to use practical effects. The effect was achieved with a thin layer of water on the ground, and having the surrounding area covered with black curtains. The Duffers explained they decided to go with this simple approach to avoid the story becoming too overblown with detail, while also using the budget limitations to be more creative without the use of CGI: In Beyond Stranger Things, Bill Nye described the Void as a point were multiverses intersect (e.g. the Upside Down and the regular world).However, the Duffers' previous statements of the Void being a portrayal of the inside of Eleven's mind contradict this.↑ 1.0 1.1 1.2 "How 'Stranger Things' Created The Void" Inverse.
