The expertise calls the thoughts the climactic moment of the classic 2001: A Room Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke, in which our protagonist stares into the void and proclaims “it’s total of stars” in awe before getting whisked off to a galaxy far away.
This pair of eye-popping installations in New York by Yayoi Kusama at the David Zwirner Gallery takes site visitors into a field of suspended and spectrum-spanning LED lights, organically staggered like stars, and wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling mirrors.
The all-encompassing impact extends to the quite door you enter via and near behind you, leaving you and as plank (Silver Surfer board, perhaps) as the only objects in a sea of obvious infinity(photos by Steven Meidenbauer, and Rebecca Dale Photography via Colossal).
The artist has been creating rooms along these lines for nearly half a century, but in these newest LED-filled wonderlands are the most immersive to date. The show also involves a series of illuminated sculptures, projected video clips and wall-hung paintings, but culminates in this pair of these so-known as Infinity Rooms that seem to be to stage past the boundaries of an art gallery in exist in worlds all their personal.
