Infinity Mirrors – By Yayoi Kusama

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.

    Wow! I wish this was in California cuz I would go right now. It reminds me of the teamLAB exhibit I saw when I went to the Mori Art Museum in Japan.

    I’ve only been to a similar type of exhibit in California. I love the texture and colors of each exhibit I saw. This is super cool. Hope to visit this one someday!

    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.

    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.

    I love the red and white in Phalliโ€™s Field! All of the rooms look amazing. I hope I can make it there before the exhibit is finished. thanks for sharing!

    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!

    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.

      I mean, I saw it when it was in LA.

  9. February 22, 2017 / 9:18 pm

    I like them! Especially the last one, the souls ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!

    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?

    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!

    I want to go! I’ve seen a photo of Phalliโ€™s Field but didn’t realize how extensive the exhibit was!

  14. February 23, 2017 / 2:37 am

    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.

    This looks like such a great experience! I can’t even imagine how fun it must be to navigate this installation! So cool!

  16. February 23, 2017 / 4:00 pm

    Amazing, might need to make a pitstop in DC for this!!

  17. February 23, 2017 / 6:11 pm

    ‘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!!!!

  18. March 1, 2017 / 5:34 pm

    I hope I am able to get the passes. Last Monday they were literally gone in 45 seconds…

    • March 1, 2017 / 9:16 pm

      Every Monday they are available for the following week – they also have same day passes if you show up super early and wait in line

      • March 1, 2017 / 9:27 pm

        This Monday their site was down 5 seconds afterthought they opened and 45 seconds later all were gone:( fingers crossed I am lucky next Monday!

  19. March 2, 2017 / 12:32 pm

    whaaat?! these look ah-mazing! Especially the first and the last one. Would definitely like to see these

  20. March 6, 2017 / 2:10 pm

    Great shots of the Infinity rooms! I like the angles you chose. I just went on Tuesday of last week and can’t wait to go back when crowds are a bit less hectic.

    • March 6, 2017 / 2:49 pm

      Thanks for reading. I can’t wait to go back the last week and see the Obliteration Room after everyone has added their touch of dots ๐Ÿ™‚

      • March 6, 2017 / 2:53 pm

        There are SO many dots already – it doesn’t even look primarily white anymore. Pretty crazy.

    This exhibition is in Singapore right now I just visited it! It’s breathtaking isn’t it? The infinity room was definitely my favourite! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
