Get lost somewhere beautiful…Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room.
Art, we all love it, it makes us happy. Different levels of consciousness are evoked from allowing yourself to get lost in a beautiful piece of art. Most commonly original paintings, drawings and photography, but every now and they you are given to opportunity to feel art. To hear art. To sense art in more ways than one. Installations are an absolute playground for the senses. A space in this world where you can completely switch off and get lost somewhere beautiful. A cocoon of calming wonder, a space in which your under child can let go and imagine/sense what you want to be real.
Time and time again i find beautiful posts on Pinterest that feature installations i know would simply blow me away if only i got to experience them. I make sure i get involved, if ever they are close to me. I’ve been lucky enough to experience one in London… Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room, and i’ll never forget it. It was a monday morning, and due to my hospitality lifestyle i was work free that day. The sun rose around 9 am. A typical grey, dark, subzero London morning. Sparked by a friends Facebook post i knew i had to be a part of this… Infinity Room. So i jumped on the tube, got off at Southwark and wandered into the iconic building that is the Tate Modern. Yayoi’s whole exhibition was quirky, spotty, colourful and abstract. But wow. That infinity room, her own personal cosmos. Long story short, the right side of my brain had an absolute party, and i walked out of there feeling like i had meditated. I felt beautiful.
The installation is made from wood, metal, glass mirrors, plastic, acrylic panel, rubber, led lighting system, and acrylic balls. It’s hard to acknowledge but…That’s it. So i thought id share with you some photo’s of this wondrous place, if you get the chance to visit .. It’s well worth it. Enjoy 🙂
