Yoyoi Kusama’s vertigo-inducing “Infinity Room” (17 pictures)
Long lines have been forming inside the David Zwirner gallery in New York City as visitors wait for their chance to stand inside one of eccentric Japanese artist Yoyoi Kusama’s vertigo-inducing “Infinity Rooms.”
The installation’s mirror room, “Souls of Millions of Light Years Away,” is brilliantly simple – it’s a room in which the walls, the floor and the ceiling are mirrors. This seemingly infinite space is populated by hanging, blinking LEDs, which make the space seem like a galaxy or a nebula.
Word of the art instillation, on display until December 21st, 2013, has gone viral in the city and lines can be up to several hours long. If you decide to check out the exhibit that will have you trying to wrap your mind around “infinity” just know that there will be a 40-second limit, yes you heard us right, on how long you can stand in the room.
