Fireflies on the Water

kusamapumpkin-600x486

While not directly related to either the last project or the next one, I thought this was an amazing example of using lights in an art installation. The room’s floor is filled with water except for a walkway viewers can walk on, and the walls are mirrors, creating a completely reflective room for the lights to play tricks in.

The artist Yayoi Kusama really plays around with creating the perception of infinity so I think she’s worth checking out. She’s back in Japan, but just the past fall, she had the Fireflies on the Water exhibition at the MoMA (which I unfortunately could not check out in person…).
