A Short Time in a Dark Room with LED Lights and Mirrors

Infinity Mirrored Room by Yayoi Kusama

At the center of our galaxy, a supermassive black hole

astronomers have named Sagittarius A-Star cannot be 

seen by visible light but is detected only by radio waves.

The artist might be trying to recreate our galaxy’s dark

cosmos of disorienting spiraling stars that spins around

the abyss of A-Star or her own hallucinations. Reviewers

suggest she is trying to show how the experience of awe

and insignificance might be closely related. To contemplate

the infinite and one’s own mind requires a vast distance.

Or maybe not. Her exhibits have been called contemporary,

expressionism, experience art, installation art, among others

but they probably best go undefined.
