The Infinity Mirror Room by Yayoi Kusama

Today's inspiration is installation by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whose career spans six decades. She lived in a psychiatric institution for the last four decades and has been obsessed with dots and infinity for her entire career, an inspiration she attributes directly to her hallucinations. Despite her plays on the motif in the past, it makes her work no less striking. The cube-shaped, mirror-panelled room features a shallow reflecting pool as its floor and hundreds of multicoloured LED lights suspended at varying heights from the ceiling. Flickering and pulsing wildly, the bulbs generate a strobe-like effect within the interior suggesting an endless illumination reminiscent of the universe.
