Self-Obliterating Pink Round
Yayoi Kusama creates her "Infinity Rooms" by installing hundreds of colored LED lights and polka-dotted spheres into mirrored spaces. Why the dots? When she was a little girl, she had a hallucination about a field of flowers that started talking to her. The heads of the flowers resembled dots that surrounded her as far as she could see and made her feel as if she was disappearing, or as she calls it, "self-obliterating."
