Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Infinity Rooms’ Are Here To Turn Your Instagram Feed Into Art

Throughout her 70-year career, Japanese artist and almighty priestess of polka dots Yayoi Kusama has created a series of rooms ― mirrored, enclosed spaces that use water, twinkly lights, bespeckled balloons, soft phallic sculptures and pumpkins ― to prompt viewers to contemplate the idea of the infinite universe.

And, from what we’ve gleaned, the infinite universe is very photogenic. 

On Friday, Feb. 24, the stunning traveling exhibition “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” opens at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., featuring six of Kusama’s iconic, infinite spaces. 

Viewers are encouraged to enter each space alone, with approximately 45 seconds to take it in once inside. It’s probably a smart idea to sign up for free, timed passes to minimize time spent waiting in lines ― the exhibition is expected to be a blockbuster. 

Since you won’t have boundless time to photograph yourself in the seemingly boundless spaces, you’d be wise to head into the rooms ready to take in the work and take a photo in an expedient manner. And know this: snapping a selfie in the dizzying space is not disrespectful toward Kusama’s mission. In fact, a photo is a simple way to harness the spirit of her rooms ― by multiplying yourself, immersing yourself in your environment, and becoming an infinite image yourself. 

Stay tuned for our full review of the exhibition. In the meantime, take a digital walk through the show below, and read more about the exhibition here

Pen Coffee Mike and Smoke Filled Rooms

the 60’s and 70’s were full of promise, hopes, and dreams. people talked about things like stopping wars, civil rights, feeding the world, freeing the people, power to the people, and peace and love for the whole universe. so being a successful stand-up comedian seemed a modest objective. after all, don’t they just jump on stage, tell a few jokes, and disappear behind the curtain? besides; saving the world is a tough job and it doesn’t even pay medical and dental.from office cubicle to stand-up comedy and back to the cubicle it’s the story of a clerk with marginal talent who manages to get further than even he imagined, and it’s a story with an unusual mixture of humor and stark realities (especially when he goes back to the cubicle).baby boomers have now reached the age of reflection. the time to sum up their successes and failures. so what about regrets? did they leave something undone? was there something they wished they had tried, but were afraid? would they do it all over again the same way? should success be measured only in tangible results, or do the boomers get credit for simply trying?we all have dreams. most people have dreams just to have dreams; to be a rock star, a famous actor, a sports superstar selling tennis shoes, or even a president. nothing wrong with dreams. it’s good for the imagination. but to actually try pursuing and living the dream is an impressive victory over one’s self-doubts. whether you follow the road a short time, or at least long enough to get a bloody nose, maybe you’ve succeeded where many have failed because you had the courage to step through the mirror.this is the story of someone who did.he survives a kidnapping by his father, writes stand-up comedy material in high school, and after joining a college fraternity reminiscent of animal house, is removed from college for academic reasons.homemade vodka.since the show biz lifestyle was a 24/7 pursuit, he takes a break from the comedy wars to tour russia. he performs a one-niter
