Brace yourself internet, Infinity Mirrors is about take social media by storm, and its totally worthy!

Artist Yayoi Kusama from Japan, has 6 mirror rooms and an Obliteration room on display in the Hirshhorn Museum in D.C. until Mid May. Then will continue touring around the United states for a total of 2 years.

“Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos/ Polka dots are a way to infinity.” – Kusama

Touted as one of the greatest works of art alongside Andy Warhol, prepare to have your senses blown away in these self experience rooms, of infinity mirrors.

The Obliteration Room is the only room that is not mirrored and is a work in progress. Each attendee gets a card of colored stickers to place throughout the all white room and will be complete at the end of the exhibition.

  2. Yayoi Kusama exhibits are always interesting. Usually I hate going to art exhibits with friends, but hers are easy to get interested in, even for people who don’t care about art at all.

  3. Ooooh – I would love to check this out. It will be cool to watch the Obliteration room fill up with color. Too bad you only get 20 seconds though. Do they just allow one person in at a time? That would make sense.

  4. Whoa this looks amazing!!! Didn’t you just go to this yesterday?! How did you write this and edit pics so quickly? Crazy!! It looks really awesome – if I was in DC I would definitely go. Great post!

  5. Oh, my I love this especially the Pumpkins room. I think that is a great idea about the people visiting get to place a coloured sticker in the white Obliteration Room. It would be great to see the end result once the exhibition is completed. Too bad this exhibition is not in London as I would really enjoy seeing it.

  6. This looks such a cool exhibition! So sad I’m not in the USA to visit it. Loved the pictures you posted, specially those with so many colours!

  7. This looks amazing. Definitely worth joining the museum for $50 and a quick trip to DC. I need to take a look at my schedule and see if i can make it happen! And check their tour schedule to see if they are coming to NYC, where it will prob be a total mob scene! I assume they usher you through the exhibits pretty quickly? How long would you plan to stay?

  8. This is absolutely incredible! My best friend lives in DC. I have to tell her about this! I wish that we were going to get there before it left! I love really interesting exhibits like this one. I also love the interactive aspect of it. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Not only does that look colorful and fun, but I’m sure in person it would be so much more. I’ll have to see where it is when I’m visiting the States this summer. The photos are pretty cool and quirky.

  10. ‘Our earth is only one polka dot’ is such a great saying and it reminds me of the radio broadcast I heard yesterday about a group of scientists that have found another 7 planets which have the ability for life and water – how impressive is that!!!!
